Camouflage of British Destroyers and Escorts in World War II
by Ed Valerio
Camouflage of British Destroyers and Escorts in World War II is an illustrated guide to the patterns and colors used by the British navy in their war against Hitler’s U-boats. The book explains the history of camouflage on these vessels and some of the reasons why the British chose the schemes they did, and how they evolved over the course of the war.
The ships in this two hundred page volume are displayed by type and in chronological order, beginning with the smallest vessels such as trawlers and launches, then up through corvettes, minesweepers, hunts, sloops, frigates, V & Ws, four-Stackers, older destroyers and leaders, and finally, the larger fleet destroyers. The several hundred profiles illustrated in this book are all drawn to a common scale, and in their accurate patterns and colors.
Much of the research for the book was carried out by Alan Raven, the world’s foremost expert on the subject, and all the detailed illustrations in this unique work were drawn by Ed Valerio. If you love military history, or ship modeling, you will find no better guide to the precise look of these most important classes of British warships.
