From its origins to its use in combat today, '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 World War II, 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.
About the Author
In 1996, Tim Newark wrote 'Brassey's Book of Camouflage'-the first book to tell the entire story of camouflage uniforms. It stuck a chord with the fashion industry and was a hit among design students, with Tim appearing on the BBC TV Clothes Show. He has continued his research into the history of camouflage and in 2007 he was the author of 'Camouflage' (Thames&Hudson), the book accompanying the Imperial War Museum exhibition, the first to show the entire history of camouflage from the First World War to its impact on contemporary fashion.
