German Naval Camouflage - Volume 1

Something rather lovely popped through the letter box this week - a copy of "German Naval Camouflage" by John Asmussen and Eric Leon.

This is an excellent publication, written by the creator of the famous website and beautifully illustrated by Eric Leon. Over 190 pages covering every major German surface warship from the light cruisers upwards, including (as far as possible every variation in colour scheme and tactical markings, a selection of destroyer schemes and even a few pages on embarked seaplanes. The many colour illustrations are supported by a myriad of photographs (many of them quite rare and unusual), and a very readable and informative text.

Well worth grabbing a copy, and highly recommended! I can't wait for volume 2!!
