Is there an English translation (preferably online) of the Chofetz Chaim's sefer Machaneh Yisrael (a guide for Jewish army conscripts), or other English works on the same topic?

There's a translation of Machane Yisrael into English published as English-only (the original Hebrew is not included). It's Machaneh Yisrael (I mean, that's how they spell the title) and the copyright page reads:

Just came across an older translation - http://www.hebrewbooks.org/22154

    Note that that volume indicates that it's "inspired by and based upon" Machane Yisrael and (further along) explicitly denies being a translation.

Netzach Yisrael translated by HaRav Yedidya Levy of Congregation Mazal Elul; deals with similar topics.

    This answer could be greatly improved if you posted a link to that Sefer. Otherwise I see nothing wrong.
