All will be revealed in this untold story of how artists were employed by the military, so as to fool the enemy in modern warfare by some adept sleight of hand. These Camoufleurs created some bizarre decoys, dummy tanks and elaborate sets to hide military installations.

Due to the rise of high tech modern warfare, artists were once again in the frame and under the pump for the ultimate in camouflage and invisibility.
