|Date of Review||February 2016||Title||Camouflage and Markings of German Armor in the Battle for Cassino|
|Author||Jeffrey Plowman, Daniele Guglielmi||Publisher||Model Centrum Progres|
|Format||48 pages, softbound||MSRP (USD)||$36.95|
Focusing on Nazi armor, number 13 in Model Centrum Progres’ “Armor Color Gallery” recaps fierce fighting in Italy during the first five months of 1944.
Camouflage & Markings of German Armor in the Battle for Cassino: January-May 1944 chronologically covers the campaign in eight compact sections:
- Preliminary Moves
- First Battle
- Second Battle
- Third Battle
- Final Battle
- Breakout to the Senger Line
And it perfectly compliments the publisher’s previous study of Allied armor in Cassino combat. Contents include dozens of previously unpublished B&W photos. And 19 beautifully rendered color profiles provide plenty of project inspiration. How about that “deturreted” M4A1 Sherman in Sturmgeschütz-Brigade 242 service?
I loved this cool, compact chronicle. Now I have clear views of those external drive-sprocket teeth on German Semovente M42 da 75 mm vehicles!
