This is the #17 book in the Armor Color Galley range – Camouflage & Markings of German Armor in Italy From Anzio Landings to the Alps January 1944 to May 1945.

The Chapters are:

  • Acknowledgements
  • Introduction
  • Defending Anzio-Nettuno
  • Retreat to the Apennines
  • Withdrawal to the Senio
  • Retreat to the Alps
  • Anti-partisan armor
  • Color plates

I found the photographs in this book to be amazing, fascinating, and very detailed, ideal for any modeler as reference materials. The photographs are of very different conditions of the Armor compared to most publications of this type. I have spent many hours just review each picture which all show such great scene, I would love to know the full story behind all of them. The book is nearly all pictural which is not an issue for me as a picture can tell you so much more that words. Along with the many photos and captions there are some very nice profile drawings.

I recommend this book to everyone with an interest in the German Armor especially in Italy and a must for modelers.

Thanks go to Casemate Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
