    How old is the book?

    Books are excellent but always remember they do go out of date and not everything contained within is correct.

    Agree with Adrian. I love a good reference book and have a quite few, but almost without exception they will have miss-identified fakes/copies in them.


    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I am a big fan of these books and magazines from B&D Publishing. About as up to date as you can get!

    I am looking forward to the Wehrpass and Soldbuch book !

    A good question to start learning!

    First of all, what is your main interest in collecting? It's no good the guys recommending books on U.S. underwear if you want to collect Chinese hand grenades......

    Sorry guys been offline, wife blow her car up lol. She's ok btw. the refernece book was published in 2000 A. It's not just artifact based, which is why I love it. It goes into depth of the history and history behind the artifacts of the holocaust.He answers the question;why is it the acrtifact came to be. Cart if you wan't to learn about german helments I suggest the book SS-Steel by Kelly Hicks. He even has a website for sales of his most recent publishes and helments for sale. Thanks for comments guys. Also Cart listen to Adrain, he will know the most historical accurate books for you needs good look and remember to enjoy it.

    *The* book to have if you are into collecting German helmets is "Germany's combat helmets 1933-1945: A modern study" by Ken Niewiarowicz, also "the history of the German steel helmet 1914-1945" by Ludwig Baer, a bit older than Ken's book but still very very good. Both are out of print now but they crop up from time to time. There are loads of German helmet books that are crap and full of fakes so be careful.
