British and Commonwealth Warship Camouflage of WWII: Volume II: Battleships & Aircraft Carriers
During World War II, navies developed camouflage for their ships. Applying it to both vertical and horizontal surfaces, they reduced visibility and confused the identities of their ships to the enemy. Maritime artist Malcolm Wright continues his depictions of the official and unofficial paint schemes that adorned the capital ships of the Royal Navy and Commonwealth. Many schemes included in this volume are difficult to find without intensive research, making this a unique and valuable resource.
