Book: Military Sun Helmets of the World
Newly Printed Item: By Peter Suciu. Just Released! The history of military sun helmets, often called ?pith helmets? or ?tropical helmets,? is a subject that has rarely been covered in-depth. Much of the origin of these helmets has remained shrouded in mystery, yet these helmets ? thanks to movies such as Zulu, The Bridge on the River Kwai and We Were Soldiers ? are as iconic to their conflicts as the German or American steel helmets are to the World Wars.
This book, of over 100 pages, examines the history of these helmets, from the Indian Mutiny through the modern day. With nearly 200 color photographs and illustrations, as well as dozens of period photographs, this book is an essential guide to anyone interested in learning more about this form of military headgear that has been used around the world since the middle of the 19th century.
Beautifully put together, a volume to treasure that with its wipe clean laminated hard cover can travel with you to Shows and Exhibitions. A jolly good read and an essential book for the Military Historian.
