Conventional Ammunition in Surplus: A Reference Guide is designed to be a user-friendly, one-stop reference for all stakeholders involved in the process, from governments and militaries to international organizations and advocacy groups. It presents the fundamental issues relevant to conventional ammunition in surplus in concise sections.
