Book Description

13 Sep 2004 Schiffer Book for Collectors with Price Guide
This full-color book covers nearly all of the NATO, and other European armies camouflaged uniforms, and not only shows and explains the many patterns, but also their efficacy of design. Described and illustrated are the variety of materials tested in over forty different armies, and includes the history of obsolete trial tests from 1945 to the present time. More than two hundred patterns have been manufactured since World War II using various landscapes and seasonal colors for their look. The Vietnam and Gulf Wars, African or South American events, as well as recent Yugoslavian independence wars have been used as experimental terrains to test a variety of patterns. This book provides a superb reference for the historian, reenactor, designer, and modeler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book From Dr. Borsarello... 3 Feb 2013
By The Gyro Captain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm familiar with Doctor Borsarello's writings through "Camouflaged Uniforms of the Warsaw Pact & Non-Aligned Forces." So I quickly bought a copy of his latest work. I was not dissapointed; "Camouflage Uniforms of European and NATO Armies 1945 to the Present" is excellent. The book is not really an encyclopedia of camouflage, rather a survey, which shows how various countries have decided to hide their soldiers. A few points about the book:

* This is a survey, not all-inclusive. So you may not see your "favorite" camouflage pattern. On the other hand, I'm sure you will find patterns you never knew existed.

* I'm glad Borsarello lists a wide range of countries, not just the big countries whose militaries are often in the news.

* Quite a few of the photographs and text are the same as Borsarello's "Camouflaged Uniforms of the Warsaw Pact." If you've read that book, be prepared for repeat. Since "Warsaw Pact" came out ten years before "Camouflage Uniforms," I hoped that Borsarello would include new photos, not merely rehash old photos.

* As is typical with a niche book, this did not come from a large publisher, with highly paid translators. So the English language version can be tough to understand because of the broken English. It isn't a show-stopper, but will take a little effort.

* Borsarello has a confusing tendency to invent names for camouflage, rather than using each country's designation. This can be confusing because he often gives different names to the same pattern. An example would be his using three different terms for the same pattern of Czechoslovakian Warsaw Pact camouflage; or his using two very different descriptions of the same Spanish camouflage.

* Finally, a word of note...Though this book covers "1945 to the present," Borsarello's present ends when the book was first published in 1999. A lot of changes have come about in the 13 years since the book came out. Perhaps Doctor Borsarello will publish a second edition?

All in all, Doctor Borsarello is one of the most distinguished military historians on the field of camouflage theory and patterns. I recommend this book to all my friends who collect militaria, and I recommend it to you, too.
