Helmets of the ETO by Regis Giard

Book Description

This book proposes a complete study of the variants in the manufacturing of the M1 helmet, illustrated with more than 700 full-color photos and presents a new selection of helmets coming from the woodwork, stemming from private collections and museums. The technical evolution of the M1 and its paratrooper conversions M2 and M1 C is summarized in the form of plans and clear synthesis boards. The selection of more than 120 helmets evokes, from Normandy to Germany, the battles of the European Theatre of operation. Numerous photos reveal their peculiarity, pictograms summarize their technical characteristics and legends tell their history. These material witnesses bring to life a conflict which ravaged the western Europe. REVIEWS At first I thought a book about a type of combat helmet, how interesting can this be? Well, let me tell you, this book covers the M1 helmet completely from design to combat history in World War II. The neat thing is that this book has stories to tell about a collected series of M1 helmets that were found after the war. I was very impressed a must have for your book collection. Internet Modeler, 06/2008 This forensic look at history one helmet a time will be of interest to any World War II historian, and will also be an excellent resource for World War II figure modelers that are missing out on some very distinctive details that were applied in the theater. Definitely recommended! Cybermodeler, 06/2008"
