    Default My military helmets books.

    I use the internet & books for references, here are the books.

    Let me start with a work of love by 3 French collectors. Their work in 3 volumes took 20 years to complete, the original editor of the first volume quit because of low sales. That did not stop the project but did slow it down. The second volume was financed personally by the 3 authors. The 3rd volume could not be released until enough money came back from the sale of the second volume. After a few years they were able to release it, the 3rd volume(400 + pages included more photos, updates & corrections from the previous volumes. This project was also possible with the help of many passionate world wide collaborators.
    This encyclopedia is a must. In French.
    Volume 1 & 2 are available (second hand), volume 3 is very hard to find.

    ELMETTI (HELMETS) by Paolo Marzetti is another must have.
    The author is Italian, the plus for this book apart from being full of information
    is that it is bilingual, Italian & English. This 2003 is the fourth Edition.

    Yves Plasseraud with the help of many collaborators put together (again) a great book,
    this time shedding light on the obscure helmets of Central & South America States.
    Yves Plasseraud visited every States involved & of course their Military museum.
    This is a wonderful book!
    The book is in French, at the end of each Chapter a summary in Spanish & English is provided.

    Default Tin hats to composite helmets. A collector's guide.

    Here is a book I recommend for many reasons. Martin Brayley was able to give a good overview of the main steel & early composite helmets in 144 pages. Himself an former British soldier he experienced wearing the Mk. V steel helmet & it's transition to the Mk.6 composite helmet. The text is accompanied by almost 700 photos. The size of the book make it easy to carry (I'm a book guy so this book is never to far). It is great for a quick visual or historical reference.
    Good book for beginners & for quick references.

    Edition: The Crowood Press Ltd. 2008
    Authors: Martin J. Brayley
    144 pages, almost 700 photos.

    Thanks for the suggestions
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
