Summary:
In the early years of the First World War, the French started the first systematic program of trying to hide and protect military assets by using nets and natural coverage. Since then, camouflage has become an indispensable part of warfare, a valuable part of both offensive and defensive strategies.

From the facilities where space-age camouflage patterns are developed to rare footage of some of the earliest combat uses, CAMOUFLAGE traces the history of this unique discipline. See how the explosion of methods and schemes in the Second World War led to the "Golden Age of Camouflage" and go on patrol with snipers and modern marines for a first-hand look at the effectiveness of today's schemes. And looking to the future, MODERN MARVELS previews the "smart camouflage" currently in development by the army, which will use micro-capsules in the fibers themselves to change colors automatically.
