Dazzle Ships

I have been fascinated for some time by the succesful use of Dazzle Camouflage on ships during the First World War. Because of the development of radar by the time of the second war, Dazzle camouflage was not a realistic option, but earlier the complex broken lines meant that enemy submarines could not accurately judge distances and directions. No ships and few photos survive, but the World War I dazzle ships definitely earned their place in Art History - See Wikipedi link above.
