Camouflage Vol One 1939-1941 Camouflage Vol One 1939-1941
Ref: WR2
These writings had their origins in the mid-nineteen sixties after the author found it impossible to correctly ascertain the camouflage of various warships. The subsequent search for information led to substantial research into the subject and to the realization that some definitive writing was needed. On several occasions the production of a dedicated volume seemed near, but only now (2000) was the time deemed to be right.

The preceding thirty-five years has seen a small number of writings produced, some by this author, but none could be described as having in-depth coverage, and a percentage have been badly inaccurate and ambiguous.

The Royal Navy was the biggest user of seagoing camouflage in the Second World War. In spite of this widespread usage, camouflage was generally felt to be one of the minor aspects of the many wartime efforts and it’s effectiveness was often impossible to quantify. Because it played a peripheral role, it is not surprising that definitive documentation on the subject is a mixture of the sparse and the non-existent.

Royal Navy use of camouflage was a much fragmented affair, due mainly to the fact that the camouflage section formed part of a miscellaneous staff department and did not have anywhere near the authority of other departments. The issued instructions became more of a set of recommendations and advice rather than sets of orders, and when coupled with the independent nature of the average British captain, resulted in a six year period that saw everything from strictly correct usage, to any number of individual ideas and colors. Very often the unofficial or amateur idea was carried by only one vessel, and then sometimes by whole commands depending upon the interest or whim of individual or group commanders. So prevalent were these practices that the British story has been extremely difficult to reconstruct. As a large percentage of the story is without official documentation, the author spent many years in correspondence and in interviewing trying to find and piece the parts together.

The tracking down of the large number of colors used was a long and great search, one that the author believes has been successful in that almost every known color used by the Royal Navy in the 1939-45 period has been located in the form of official color cards or a written formula.

This volume does not pretend to be complete, the very nature of the subject precludes this, but for the first time the story is given in some degree of depth and covers many of the side branches that people have wanted to know about for many years. Inevitably there are areas on which little or no information was forthcoming; these aside, the story is reasonably complete and accurate and should answer most questions about this somewhat esoteric but visually interesting subject.

Essex Class Aircraft Carriers of WW2 Essex Class Aircraft Carriers of WW2
Ref: WR8
The design of the Essex class began in 1939 before the start of the war in Europe. Under the terms of the then still current naval treaty the Americans were allowed to build one carrier of up to a maximum of 20000 tons which meant that the new ship would have generally the same characteristics as that of the Yorktown class.

With the British having gone to war in September and their almost immediate withdrawal from the treaty, the Americans were now free to pursue unlimited construction in numbers and displacement. The design for CV-9 was now essentially scrapped and a new range of designs was drawn up. Armor was increased, as was the flight deck area; the close range AA weapons were changed from all single 5inch to twin 5inch mounts; the machinery was now arranged in an alternate boiler room/machinery room style; this gave a far greater resistance to damage. The end result of all the changes over the original design was one that had a length of 872 feet and a displacement of 33,000 tons.

Like all the other books in Warship Perspective Series, this book is aimed at the warship enthusiast and modeller and contains general arrangement plans, fittings drawings, camouflage patterns and technical charts, data and many contemporary photographs.
