Product Description
About This Book

I had heard of dazzle ships long ago but this book really brings them to life. It is both beautifully written and beautifully illustrated. It should be of interest to British students also. Britain tried many methods to keep their ships from being sunk. This book will appeal to both children and adults wanting to know more about this subject.
