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.

Another great resource

I enjoyed the first volume in this series, but in many ways I prefer this volume. This book covers camouflage for battleships and aircraft carriers and since there were fewer of these ships than the destroyers and escorts of the first volume, it provides a better view of the evolution of camouflage schemes during World War 2. This is a great book for anyone with an interest in ship camouflage and will be of particular interest to modelers and other hobbyist because of the wide variety of camouflage patterns. Additionally it provides information on the weapons and radar changes for the ships.
