1. Hi, I’ve had a chance to have a better look through the book now and nice work. I really like the lay out and find the explanations of the differences in design, decals, straps etc. easy to follow and well explained which I find especially important as a novice to this field. Howe ever what I particularly enjoy as the examples that are accompanied by a bit of the history behind that particular helmet. In my collection understanding the history of the item where possible is a big thing for me and I have enjoyed reading those bits in the book. You even manage to include some family history I see. What this has done is make me some more consideration to obtaining my first German helmet.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived late Wednesday and I haven't been able to stop reading them. Your research is outstanding, the photography is amazing, and they are the finest books of their kind that I have ever seen. They are an excellent addition to my vast collection of books on WW2. I eagerly await your next book. Thanks! M.
