This two volume set (companion volumes to the author's previous books on World War II German helmets) is packed with nearly 1000 full-colour photographs of over 180 helmets and covers, all shown at full page size and many in detail. The helmets shown are some of the most wonderful and exotic camouflage helmets to be seen in private and public collections. The various sections are divided into: Paint, Texture, Wire, Covers, Netting, Straps, Interiors and Miscellaneous with each section having its own period photograph reference section -- most never before published. The author brings to the reader and collector, for the first time, a clear, detailed look at the many and varied styles of camouflage the World War II German soldier applied to what was his most personal piece of equipment.
