“A Gallery of Military Headdress is a highly valuable resource that examines this often overlooked component of military uniforms. The book features over 280 high quality colour photographs, detailing an extensive range of military helmets, caps, hats, turbans, etc. from a wide variety of nations and across many time periods. Many of the most well known and more obscure types of headdress from the U.K, Europe and America are covered in detail, but there is also extensive coverage of the Middle East, Central Asia and India.
Heavily illustrated with colour illustrations, modern and period photographs, and accompanied by extensive texts detailing the history, and the factors which influenced the design of the headdress, A Gallery of Military Headdress is the third book authored by Peter Suciu and Stuart Bates on the history of the military headdress. Based on their own extensive collections and research, plus contributions from many other collectors and historians from around the world, this book is a comprehensive and accessible reference work that will appeal to anyone with an interest in military uniforms.”
