Camo USS Recruit

I’m not sure what’s cooler:
That during World War I, John Purroy Mitchel, “The Boy Mayor of New York,” built a giant plywood battleship called the USS Recruit in the center of Union Square to drum up volunteers for the Navy,
That it was repainted overnight by the Women’s Reserve Camouflage Corps in brightly colored dazzle camouflage to get more business,
Or that there’s a site–and a book!–called Camoupedia.
