In the first volume of this new series by Militaria Magazine, collectors will discover a new aspect of helmet camouflage in the individuality and sometimes moving aspect of `battlefield found' helmets. Impressive by their historical dimension, camouflaged helmets, whether the plain result of personal initiative or produced by teams of experienced artists, often reproduce the colours and patterns applied to tanks and guns. The wide array of more than 150 original German helmets shown here is only a glimpse of their huge variety, but it captures the general trends in World War II German equipment camouflage, from the crude and elementary mottling with issue or civilian paints to the imaginative and complicated patterns evolved within sedentary units. The veteran soldier also completed his work by adding various texturing elements. Most of these helmets originate from private collections and were found on the Normandy battlefield. Here, they are photographed in natural light, to enhance the actual efficiency of their camouflage finish. The first in a series, this book is an ideal reference source for historians, collectors, modellers and gamers alike.
