    Default German Army Headgear for 1917

    Hi

    A big year for the Germans 1917................victory in the East and the big push on the Western Front to force an end to the stalemate..............plus the introduction of new stormtroop tactics that would shape the training and evolution of the Army in the 1920's.

    Alongside this was the introduction of some uniform items that would finally break the mould of the old pre war uniforms and offer something more pracical and functional based on the experiences of the trenches.

    Here are the 1917 pattern stahlhelm, the universal field cap for other ranks and the officers version of the field cap.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
