History of camouflage wins colorful literary prize

History of camouflage wins colorful literary prize

A history of camouflage in nature, art and warfare has won the Warwick Prize, a literary award devoted this year to books on the theme of color.
"Dazzled and Deceived," by British writer Peter Forbes, was awarded the 50,000 pound ($81,000) prize on Tuesday.
The award was established in 2009 to recognize books in any genre and from any country on a specific theme.
Forbes said the win was "a vindication of a life spent bouncing science off art and vice versa."
The other finalists were two novelists, a poet, an anthropologist and a literary historian.
The prize is awarded every two years by England's University of Warwick.
The inaugural prize, on the theme of complexity, was won in 2009 by Naomi Klein's "The Shock Doctrine."
