    That all depends, of course, on what is your particular focus of collecting. Caps? Helmets? Badges and Awards? Any one branch of the services? Etc? If you can narrow it down to one field, we can certainly help you pick out a good reference book!

    Wagriff, a book on 2nd war German combat helmets is really what I'm after, looks like a few good suggestions presented already!

    In rance, they are fans of the first book, with the number of lot, you can tell if the helmet is for KM, LW or SS

    I can recommend Ken N's book and this new book by Jan and Gisle (just released)
    Hick's book is good when you want to collect specifically SS but some errors have been discovered recently.

The books layout provide the reader/collector with large pictures of decals, chinstraps, maker marks, wear and patina of paint in many angles. This is the first book of many helmet books world wide which has this type of presentation.

    Now the million dollar question....does ANYONE have, or know of someone who has a used copy of Ken N's book that they would sell? After tax, shipping and duty it's a $200 book here in Canada. A bit of a long shot I know....

    Sorry Rahllo
    The link I gave you does not work when you click on it. Abe books has several on offer at the moment at
    much cheaper prices.

    Edit: I am a total computer dunce but the link should now work
