Camouflage Smocks used by the Infantry Brigades of 6th Armoured Division in Italy 1944
Pages : 192 | Images : 136 colour photos/illustrations, 81 b/w photos/illustrations, 5 colour maps, 2 b/w maps, 22 figures, 2 graphs,
Camouflaged Fist delivers a comprehensive overview of the innovative, and until now previously un-researched, camouflage smocks worn by the infantrymen of the 6th Armoured Division. Following meticulous archival research of previously un-accessed war diaries the narrative uses a fully evidenced based approach supplemented by accounts from those who wore them and recently digitised photographs and documents to set out the who, what, why, where and when of their use.

In telling the story, Camouflage Fist also provides insight into the wider use of uniform by infantrymen in Italy and previously unpublished material concerning the 6th Armoured Division. It will be of interest and assistance to historians, military collectors, reenactors and scale modellers alike.
