"UML in a nutshell" by o'reilly is good and concise.
All the other greats make too much fuss or details for nothing( I think I am going to get bad vibes because of this statement).
Also look into using ArgoUML, which is a opensource UML tool.

I'll also recommend UML Distilled. Applying UML and Patterns is good and goes into more detail. If you want an agile book that's heavy on design and UML, consider Agile Software Development by Robert Martin.

Take a look at http://test.javaranch.com/wiki/view?GoodBooksOnUml (and add anything that's missing!)

I'll second both Larman and Martin. Larman mixes the UML stuff into the Unified Process while Martin does the same with a more agile process.

I read both "UML distilled" and "UML in a nutshell" and I feel the later is a better bet.
For some reason there is no review for this on Javaranch.
I agree that craig Larman's book is wonderful for a design buff.

And for a book more focused on UML than design, but still in a quite agile way, get a copy of Martin's "UML for Java Programmers".
 
The two armies met. But instead of battle, they decided to eat some pie and contemplate this tiny ad:
