The 'nose art' that decorated WW2 aircraft has received considerable attention but the images and slogans that decorated land vehicles has been less widely appreciated. This visually stunning book displays many fine examples (original or faithfully recreated) of the art that adorned the military vehicles of both Allied and Axis forces. Both official unit markings, such as divisional badges and unit emblems, as well as decidedly less official renderings of pin-up girls and cartoon characters are included. John Norris's concise but well researched text and extended captions set the artwork in context and explain the development of vehicle art through the course of the war and in the various armies. The result is a visual treat for the casual reader and a valuable reference for reenactors, vehicle restorers, wargamers and modellers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An interesting topic and one which modellers, military historians, re-enactors and military vehicle restorers will find interesting."--Military Model Scene
"This book will be very interesting to modelers that are looking for some cool markings to put on their vehicles. It will hold interest for military historians and enthusiasts too."--AMPS Indianapolis
"After reading the entire book, I came to a realisation that this lovely work by Mr. Norris is not just a simple collection of photographs and images. It is a hallowed testament to the eternal human aspiration to leave a mark of his own in this world before vanishing into the flames of war. It is a book that reminds us that soldiers are not killing machines who mercilessly slew their enemies on the battlefield but human beings with a heart and a soul"--Kunwon Saw
"Entertainment for the casual reader and a valuable reference for vehicle restorers and modelers alike. All colour photos."-- (05/01/2017)
A detailed study of the subject.--WWII History
