    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    Radislav books are total crap. Don't waste your time. SS steel version 2 is what you want. And read the pinned threads in this section.

    Just as Mark Bando assembled and published Mike Beaver's SS Cloth Insignia book after Mike passed away, I assembled and wrote his SS Helmets book during his illness and after he passed. So You will not go wrong with Beaver's SS Helmet book or mine. By the way, Schiffer publishing gives all royalties to Mike Beaver's widow, so that is a good thing. regards,

    They are 2 different kinds of books and in my opinion are must haves.

    The difference is the Beaver/Hicks book is a large format coffee table large picture book whereas SS Steel v 2 is more written detail and small hard cover format.

    So it's like Playboy and an illustrated novel. Both should be in any serious collection.

    I have already grabbed K. Hicks book and itīs a superb book!! Itīs very informative and I love the concept of the book!! (Early helmets - late helmets; and also interesting (especially for the beginners in the helmet collecting field) is the differentiation between the helmet producers, their decals and the shape of the helmets) But, itīs not a book, you read, whe you go to sleep.. in my opinion, itīs a book, which a beginner (such as I am) has to study/learn (just like a book for school or university) because there are so many details infos, you should take care of!! But, if somebody study the book and listens to the advices given in the book, it will take him a hughe step forward in knowledge of SS helmets!! BTW. Also some REALLY nice Camo helmets and some OUTSTANDING original examples of the hughe variety of german helmets are pictured and described in the book!!
    I simply LOVE the book and I can only highly recommend the book to everyone who likes to take a look on the SS helmet IN DETAIL!!!

    ps.
    I will also go for the Beaver/Hicks book and maybe also for the "SS Helmets- A collectors guide" from K. Hicks

    Keep reading. Don't stop. Forums are essential if you want to learn.

    I have all additions of SS-steel including the one by Beaver & Hicks. Good books if your into SS helmets.
