Camouflage and Markings Volume 7 Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review January 2014 Title Camouflage and Markings Volume 7
Author Ofer Zidon Publisher Guideline Publications
Published 2013 ISBN n/a
Format 98 pages, softbound MSRP (GBP) £17.99


Looking for a superb summary of modern Israeli airpower and livery?  Look no further than Camouflage & Markings — The Israeli Air Force, Part Three: 2002 to 2012.

Part of Guideline Publications' "Scale Aircraft Monographs" series, this compact compendium tells the total tale in 98 colorful pages.  Contents include:

  • "Introduction" and overview
  • "Into the 21st Century"
  • "The IAF's place in the world"
  • "Structural changes"
  • "Renewal of the fleets"
  • "Regional conflict continues"
  • "The contemporary IAF" and
  • "Colours and markings"

Dozens of gorgeous color photos by author Ofer Zidon enrich the illuminating effort.  Dozens more color drawings by Mark Smith provide plenty of modeling inspiration.  And combat accounts, deployment notes, charts and extended captions make this handy handbook indispensable to students of Middle Eastern warfare.

Robustly recommended!

My sincere thanks to Guideline Publications for this review sample!
