    I got the information from the seller."This helmet is from a man in latvia.It is about 150 miles from Moscow a lot of heavy fighting went on in that area/also the Russians usually didn't take prisoners most that surrendered were executed on the spot especially SS troops as payback for there atrocities towards the Russian population/it was very dirty war".

    Hope this story is true!!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
