Camouflage at War explores uniforms, military vehicles, aircraft and naval camouflage from World War I to the present day. From dummy tanks in the North African desert and zebra-striped dazzle ships on the high seas to today’s pixelated pattern uniforms used by the US and Chinese military, the book offers a wide-ranging examination of the history and development of military camouflage. In the 21st century, the use of camouflage has changed. Electronic countermeasures, stealth technology and other ‘smart camo’ have become key aspects of modern warfare, designed to mask friendly activity and deceive enemy observers. Packed with 180 photographs and artworks, Camouflage at War is a fascinating exploration of how warfare has changed over the last hundred years.
