In World War I a revolutionary new kind of camouflage was invented. Warships were painted with dazzling patterns and colors—not to hide them, but rather to make them hard to identify and track—and this dazzle scheme led to ships that looked like abstract modern artworks. This handsome set presents two playbooks for the classic game of Battleships, providing 31 different seascape maps illustrated with dazzle ships: cruisers, destroyers, dreadnaughts, minesweepers, and submarines. The clamshell box also contains a booklet on the history of dazzle ships, beautifully illustrated with patterns, plans, photos and paintings.
