Autore: Martin Brayley
400 foto-ricostruzioni a colori illustrano come le forze armate di tutto il mondo hanno sviluppato, dall'inizio della seconda guerra mondiale ad oggi, il proprio metodo di camuffare i soldati, soprattutto in risposta all'ambiente locale. I diversi tipi di uniformi da combattimento vengono illustrati con didascalia esplicativa.
The term camouflage only came into widespread use during the First World War, and the specialist camouflage units developed by the combatants at the time put the bulk of their efforts into the concealment of artillery, vehicles, observation posts and bunkers. It was not until the Second World War that all major combatant nations issued camouflage uniforms better designed to disguise profile, and also tailored to the appropriate theatre of war.
Camouflage Uniforms contains nearly 400 colour images showing how armed forces all around the world have developed their own methods of concealing troops, often in response to their unique local environments. Studio photographs clearly show the uniforms with their patterns and colours and with explanatory captions this is an essential volume for collectors and military historians.
