Article about: Thank you very much!

    Default Books & helmets.

    This thread probably doesnīt belong here, but I donīt know where else to put it, so please remove it if that should be the case

    GUYS, could you be so kind and recommend a few books that would be worth buying and reading before I go out and purchase more helmets? I have been looking for books on amazon, but there are so many and I donīt really know where to start. I know it is easy to burn my fingers out there, so a few good books would be worth spending my money on first.

    TTFN, Christina

ID:	253664Hi Christina, I have these 2 that i bought awhile ago, "Stahlhelm" is a good basic introductory to German steel helmets but the second one "German helmets 1933-1945" is well out of date as a price guide to buying and selling, although interesting there is not a single colour picture which is not good when you expect to see "Camo" Lids.

    The bible is the Ludwig Baer book,"The History of the German Steel Helmet - 1916-1945", which came out in about 1985. That book gives a great historical over view of the development of the stahlhelm. The BEST over all reference book is by Ken Niewiarowicz,"Germany's Combat Helmets - 1933-1945: A Modern Study". This came out about 2 years ago, and is a must for all collectors. If you wander into the minefield of SS, Kelly Hicks' "SS Steel" is also a must. With these you can learn one heck of a lot about this hobby. Jim G.
