The book of camouflage: the art of disappearing

Tim Newark

Wearing a bright red uniform while battling through a dreary landscape or thick jungle is not terribly sensible.

The little book of camouflage tells the history of camouflage in conflict. Its conception, its uses and the colours are looked at, as well as the key patterns - such as the German uniforms of the Second World War, the ever-recognisable American type worn during Vietnam and the British DPM - forming a sort of recognition guide to the various patterns in use in the armies of history and present day. Illustrated throughout with the patterns themselves and images of camouflage in use, Tim Newark presents a quick and detailed look at the most prolific camouflage patterns.

Hard cover, small format, photographs, 104 pages.
