Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The German Stahlhelm is perhaps the most recognizable image of World War II (1939-1945). Manufactured in its millions, it was used or copied by many countries. It is still one of the most collected relics of the war; but despite its relative availability, prices have reached levels that challenge collectors to protect themselves by acquiring in-depth knowledge. This book, by a collector of 30 years' standing, offers a detailed masterclass in the patterns, component parts and finishes of the combat helmets used by the German Army, Navy and Air Force. It is illustrated with a superb selection of rare period photos, colour photos of collected examples, and striking colour paintings.

Synopsis:

Uniforms and equipment, tactics and personalities of troops and commanders, and methods of warfare. Each book focuses on a single army or elite unit, a military tactic or a group of famous commanders. Uniform, insignia and equipment are shown in full color artwork. Easy to acquire, difficult to fake and inexpensive to buy, German helmets of World War 2 are amongst the most widely collected memorabilia of the Third Reich. This book provides a detailed classification of the helmets used by the Army, Navy and Luftwaffe.
