10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Macnamara on 1 Jun. 2002
Format: Hardcover
This book is a must purchase for the military re-enactor of the serious collector. The book is full of colour photographs detailing the smallest detail of the different camoflague patterns of Waffen SS camoflague. Not only that, it also covers the different types of camoflagued clothing, from summer wear to foul weather wear. And the history behind the different patterns. However, where the book stands out and makes itself noticed is with the chapter on field altered clothing. This chapter is very insightful and also very interesting. The book is a brilliant refrence piece and being a WW2 re-enactor I am always going back to this book for refrence as the pictures are brilliant and huge too, both the modern colour photos and the original photos of the time show examples of how the clothing was worn in the field. In short, if you are at all interested in the subject matter of the book, then you really should buy this book as the amount of research that has gone into this book is unbelievable.

Format: Hardcover
The best book about Waffen SS Camouflage Uniforms on the market.

Perfect photographs, only original uniforms in the book. Completely perfect. A necessity for somebody who occupies himself with SS camouflage uniforms.

A piece of German military history that is model today still for many armies. Because camouflage uniforms are today standard in every army.

This book is a comprehensive review of Waffen SS camoflage. 10 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the most complete reference of SS camoflage patterns and clothing I have seen. It includes several patterns (plane, palm, blurred edge, dot, oak leaf and LIEBERMUNSTER ), as well as extensive coverage of the garments utilizing these designs (zeltbahn, smocks, M-44, panzer, hats, mitts, parkas, anoraks and tropical clothing).The book contains hundreds of clear color photos and documents the development of each pattern and piece. An excellent buy!

Possibly the most in depth book on the subject-a must have! 6 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mssrs. Beaver and Borsarello have achieved a herculean task with the completion of this work. The writing and photographs alone are worth the price. I got this book 2 years ago for Christmas, and it is constantly pulled from the shelves as a photo reference( I paint resin soldiers-specifically the Waffen SS). There are many obscure and rare late war prototypes featured from private collections all over the world. It also covers accoutrements such as helmet covers, caps, mosquito netting(for snipers) mittens,APC clothing as well as rare photos of the SS paratroop uniforms. I own nearly every title that Amazon has on the subject of the Waffen SS, and almost every title that can be obtained in the US, and this title is by far the most informative, well thought out title on the subject!

A great reference for the collector and student of history 19 Jan. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Finally, someone has written and published a book about WW2 German camouflaged clothing (particularly the Waffen-SS which can take credit for becoming the first large sized military units to employ camouflaged clothing) in COLOR. I've purchased many books on the Waffen-SS, it's organizations, history, uniforms, etc. and the camouflaged patterns were always printed in black and white (with a thousand grays in between). This book covers all clothing including some interesting field-made pieces and references the SS-HQ orders for such clothing to be manufactured. It is a credit to Michael Beaver to put this work together and those of us interested in this subject matter thank him.

Not for the ill-informed 4 Jan. 2002
By "arkman05" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I though the pictures in this book were outstanding. The text that goes with them is somewhat brief however, and I would not recomend this particular book unless you have a solid base knowledge of SS Uniforms in general. It expects you to know the basics. But if you are farmiliar with SS Uniforms, then by all means this is a highly recomended addition to your collection.
