ICRC surgical programmes for war victims have been developed over many years, based on "appropriate" responses for a given situation. This often involves making the best of limited resources in an austere environment. Volume 1 of this publication covers the basics of managing war injuries, as well as general topics.
Volume 1 deals with the general principles of war surgery. Volume 2 deals with the wound ballistics, epidemiology, clinical picture, surgical treatment and complications of war wounds.
