It was obviously very important that the armoured vehicles of the Wehrmacht in World War Two be well camouflaged, but it was also important that they be recognisable and to this end a complicated array of marking was devised over the course of the war. This book focuses on those markings, which identified vehicles as friendly to other axis forces and which marked out vehicles as belonging to a particular force or unit, and illustrates them with rare and unpublished wartime photographs.

The book is arranged vehicle-by-vehicle and each photograph is accompanied by a detailed caption. It also includes a colour section, featuring side views of a selection of vehicles, and a number of wartime photographs expertly coloured to show how the tanks in question really appeared in the field.
