Italian Naval Camouflage of World War II

Product code:  35393NAV
This is a major new study of Italian naval camouflage schemes developed and used during World War Two. When Italy entered the War in June 1942, the Regia Marina (Italian navy) was a force still under development and both Italian warships and merchant ships faced the War in their peace colours; and nor had any had prewar plans been made for camouflaging ships. At that time all the principal warships were painted in a light matt grey ('grigio cenerino chiaro'), which had been adopted in the 1920s ...

The Forgotten War Of The Royal Navy

Product code:  81777NAV
This book covers the little known period of naval warfare in the Gulf of Finland, sparked by the German intervention in Finland and Estonia in early 1918 and evacuation of the Baltic Fleet through ice to Kronstadt.

RAIDERS German Auxiliary Cruisers of World War Two

Product code:  18217NAV
German commerce raiders – auxiliary cruisers looking like harmless merchantmen, but carrying strong concealed armament – were operating worldwide on sea lanes during the Second World War. Even today they are an interesting and rarely described theme, being often cloaked in legends and “naval lore”. These mystery ships – similar to the Allied Q-ships from the First World War, old and almost derelict cargo vessels with concealed weapons, equipped to chase German submarines – were rebuilt in secrec...

She was finally dispatched with gunfire and torpedoes on 27 May, less than five months after her completion. Her wreck still lies where she sank, 4,800m d...
