"...will be of great interest to modelers who plan on doing a carrier in this type of camouflage and to naval historians alike."

- AMPS Indianapolis

"All the photos are clear and offer various views, including many overhead shots, of each escort carrier. The clarity of the camo patterns on the hull is especially helpful to wargamers and modelers looking to add some pizazz to your ships."

- Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

"The price is worth the cost, and this is not going to be a dust-collector book. Very highly recommended for naval fans and modelers."
