Product Description

U.S. Armor Camouflage & Markings WWII Vehicles. Squadron Books 6090.

New Soft Cover. 64 Pages, loaded with pictures.Special Series books let you experience selected subjects from all angles through virtual visual tours - the next best thing to being there yourself. An extensive photo essay with emphasis on the details. Perfect for modeler or enthusiast, a view from countless external perspectives as well as peek inside of serviceable or restored examples of the real thing.

The camouflage and markings carried by U. S. Army and Marine Corps armored vehicles is the subject of this 2005 64-page Squadron/Signal book by well-known military author Jim Mesko. If your interest is American vehicles that go clank in the night, you'll want to pick up this inexpensive, well-illustrated and interesting introduction to the subject.

After a seven-page summary of U. S. pre-war military vehicle markings, Mesko gets to the meat of the book, thirty-six pages devoted to Army markings and camouflage in the ETO. As is borne out by many photographs in the book, it's a misconception to generalize that all American vehicles were Olive Drab with white markings. Mesko has unearthed some surprisingly diverse paint schemes and markings that are real eye-openers. The book's final sections focus on the Pacific Theater with seven pages on Army markings and a 10-page overview of USMC vehicles.

U.S. ARMOR packs over 170 black and white photographs of a myriad of American military vehicles in its 64 pages; everything from a T3 Christie medium tank to Stuarts, Shermans, M8 armored cars as well as M29 Weasels, LVTs and M26 armored recovery tractors. Eight pages of color profiles by the always excellent Don Greer along with David Gebhardt and Darren Glenn round out the book.
