Never looked in that book but the writer also has a helmet website which is pretty outdated to today's standards. We learned a lot about German helmets in the past 7 or so years and the site has not picked up on that. I think the book will probably lack important information but is a good resource on the organisations using the helmets.

This book came with my mail today. Great book indeed!!! :-)))
Well, I've mailed Ken couple of weeks ago because I was looking for his book and to ask him or he maybe still has a copy or so. No luck. But,
he did told me that there probably would be a reprint in 2014. So, we'll see!
Perhaps I should sell my copy while they are expensive and hard to get before any reprint edition is published.
Ken's book is the the best while the thread starter, which I also have, is basic at best, though it does cover the liner retaining rivets which Ken's book did not.
its just an opinion.
I own Brian Bell's (Ospery) book I find it useful on just a basic course on the combat helmets there are a lot of good things in it the Ken N book is very advanced my friend has a copy and I have read it several times good book also. timothy
Alright! Thanks for your contribution. I'll buy Ken's book later on. For now I'll just drain all the info I can get from Brian Bell's one.
MOTHER OF PEARL! Copies of Ken N.'s book are $350...each! For that price it better at least come with a helmet shell!
Does anybody know of decent book that *doesn't* require a co-signer to purchase?
Sounds like the OP's book is a good basic starter, and at a tenner it seems good value.
