The world had never seen an army like the German army of WW2; as Winston Churchill once said, "If it is to live in peace it must never see another". Nothing symbolized the hard fighting soldier of the Third Reich more than the iconic "stahlhelm", with its distinctive, sinister profile. As the war progressed and German troops found themselves increasingly on the defensive, many "soldaten" painted their helmets with striking camouflage patterns to blend in with their surroundings. German camo helmets of WW2 have fascinated collectors for decades, leading Paul Martin to write an authoritative reference book on the subject in 2015. This CAMOUFLAGE HELMETS OF THE WEHRMACHT VOL.
1 GERMAN WW2 STAHLHELM REFERENCE BOOK is in near mint, unread condition, with only some light scattered storage wear evident (most pictured). Otherwise, the book is in near mint shape, with no other damage.
