While many studies have examined the relationship between arms races & the causes of war, this study considers the impact of arms shipments on a conflict once it has begun. Looks at the  effect weapon transfers have on the escalation or de-escalation of warfare & on the progress of negotiations. Pinpoints the timing of arms transfers (AT) & then assesses the influence of those deliveries. Evaluates the leverage exercised by suppliers in deciding if & when to provide arms. While AT  seldom exert much direct leverage over negotiations, they are interpreted unfailingly as political statements by all concerned parties. Although AT generally increase the bloodshed in a given conflict, large-scale resupply can shorten the duration of hostilities.
