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 another authoritative reference book on the subject in 2019. This CAMOUFLAGE HELMETS OF THE WEHRMACHT VOL. 2 GERMAN WW2 STAHLHELM REFERENCE BOOK is in MINT, unread, new in the wrapper condition, with absolutely no rips, holes, tears, or damage of any kind.
Most interestingly, it boasts elegantly illustrated hardcovers, and sports 283 pages full of descriptive text, period pictures, and color photographs of German WW2 camouflage helmets, including netted helmets, a gallery of "Normandy" camos, winter camos, "splotch" camos, paratrooper helmets, medic helmets, and wired helmets, entire chapters devoted to helmets with provenance and the progression of helmet liners, the best of Ron Richter's collection, and much, much more.
