Military Small Arms Ammunition monograph is the fundamental, definitive resource on the subject. Four massive and well issued books are covering everything from the invention of gunpowder to modern ammunition, including virtually-unknown-in-the-West Russian experimental and special purpose ammunition. So, these are must-have books not only for the serious engineers, student and historians, but also for all firearms fans, even though they have only been published in Russian so far. Fingers crossed for a full English translation sometime in the near future. Author of the description: Nathaniel Fitch.
