German Helmets of the Second World War Vol.2
This two volume set is a fully illustrated, detailed look at the famous German "stahlhelm" of World War II. Full color photographs - including multiple-view, interiors, and up-close detail - show Army, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Waffen-SS, Paratroop, and many others. There have been several noteworthy reference books on German helmets over the past few years, but German Helmets of the Second World War gives the collector the unique opportunity to study the many examples portrayed at close quarters. Presented for the first time are images of the highest quality and definition - details of model types, liners, insignia, camouflage paint schemes, covers and accoutrements - all in full colour. To help put these helmets into a historic context, there are also many original, unpublished black and white photographs. Both volumes have been specifically produced to give the advanced collector the opportunity to expand his or her knowledge, and to compare paint and insignia against their own collections. For the novice or would-be collector, these books are an invaluable reference.
