Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In OSPREY's World War II Tactical Camouflage Techniques, author Gordon L. Rottman explains the various materials and techniques adopted by Army tactical units. Rottman begins his narrative with a short introduction recapping how sophisticated weaponry necessitated developing camouflage practices after World War I. Subsequent segments on specific camouflage resources and methods dominate this handy reference.  Here, the author covers essentials of US, British, German and Soviet practices – from the individual soldier to artillery emplacements in the European and Mediterranean theaters of operation."
- Rachel E. Veres, www.cybermodeler.com (April 2013)

"...pairs vintage black and white photos with color illustrations by Peter Dennis in the course of exploring military camouflage history. Detailed artwork and history considers US, British, German and Soviet practices, and offers a fine focus on camouflage techniques and their evolution."
- The Midwest Book Review (May 2013)
