Overview
-

A comprehensive, accurate, and academically-supported reference of all of the major military and paramilitary camouflage patterns that have been in use around the world from the end of World War Two to today.

This book will be a one-stop, generalized reference illustrating as many patterns as have been researched into the present time period. It will surpass all previous efforts. In addition to color tiles illustrating camouflage patterns it will include photographs of the designs actually being worn by military and paramilitary personnel, something few other references have done in suitable combination.

About The Author
-

Eric H. Larson has been a leading researcher and collector of military camouflage for more than thirty years. He created one of the very first internet forums devoted to discussion of camouflage designs and military combat uniforms, the International Camouflage Uniform Society (ICUS), which brought together collectors, researchers, curators, and historians from around the world. In 2010, he co-founded the Camopedia website (with friend and fellow researcher/collector Henrik Clausen), which is a living document and the only comprehensive, academically-supported database of military camouflage patterns known to exist.

Eric has served as a primary consultant for published research projects, and has been cited in many military reference works, histories, artistic works, blogs, forums, personal websites and even role-playing game supplements. In addition to a passion for camouflage, he is also a collector and researcher of international airborne and special operations insignia, head dress, and unit histories. His interests include history, linguistics, classical literature, music, woodworking and the preservation of traditional indigenous cultures. Eric lives a quiet life in the Pacific Northwest, sharing space with native flora, fauna and local waters.
