"Naval Camouflage 1914-1945, a Complete Visual Reference", by David Williams, NIP 2001
I cannot decide whether to recommend this book or not. It has lots of pictures of ships (good), but a lot of them are poor. For example, one of them is captioned "Although not that evident in this photograph, the ... carries ... Measure 32..." Well if the picture is so poor that you cannot see what it illustrates, why not drop it in favor of a better picture?
There are only 15 color photographs. Even here, there is waste. Six of them are modern photographs of two memorial ships painted to match WW2 colors. That is probably a good way to see the colors. Not bad, except that there are two photos of HMS Belfast showing the same scheme (alternate sides to be sure, but when there are so few color slots we'd be better off with a different picture) and there are 4 modern color photos of the ORP Blyskawica; two are of the same side on the same day. Inconceivable.
Then there are other irritations. Captions which say (I paraphrase) "here is measure xx, a true dazzle..." but nowhere in the book does it say what the difference is between "true" dazzle and other dazzle. The author also distinguishes between disruptive and dazzle, again without explaining the difference.
OK, so I cannot recommend it as a reference book. So, close it up. Put it on the shelf. Wait a couple of days. Get it out and open it up. Only this time, instead of expecting a reference book, expect an art book. If you simply look at the photos (even though poor), the craft of the original artists comes through. On this level, this book is very enjoyable. Just look at the pictures.

The author presents a well researched account of (mainly) allied naval camouflage through both world wars. I commend his effort, however I feel he was let down by the publisher in the production department. While the text is informative & near comprehensive, the photos are of very poor quality. They were obviously not retouched with Photoshop which I would consider mandatory in this day & age. If the author is reading, I'd suggest Schiffer or another publisher that knows how to do historical photo books. The price of this Naval Institute Press book is obscene considering the poorly put forth photos, which are far too small & far too dark (and fuzzy). For the modeler, I'd suggest the handbook by Patrick Hreachmack, supplemented by the appropriate Squadron/Signal books, etc.

Being a miniature wargammer, I have a great need for a reliable referance book that shows naval camouflage schemes. This book has numerious black and white pictures and several color photos that are a great help for painting. The book is somewhat lacking on describing the base of some schemes, but if you have basic knowledge in colors each navy uses, it is not very hard to asign colors to the paterns. This book is espically useful in showing several uncomon to rare Axis camo paterns. A must for anyone who wants to paint WWI or WWII naval ships.
