This book, volume three in a series of four, describes and illustrates post WW2 camouflage and markings as follows:

Chapter 1: Paint and Camouflage post WW2
Chapter 2: Arm of Service Markings
Chapter 3: Formation Signs

The book is profusely illustrated with photos, color profiles, and detail drawings. It describes in detail the official paint schemes, the variations often seen in practice, and the individual and unit markings applied to tanks, armored cars, trucks and smaller vehicles, and towed guns. The series will prove invaluable for military enthusiasts and modelers, as it makes sense of a very confusing topic!
