Definitely not something you'll take along on a field trip due to its sheer weight of 3 kg. Nevertheless, I can highly recommend The German infantry from 1871 to 1914 because of its excellent content and clear, high resolution pictures. All pictures in this 2 volume book are full colour and moreover it deals not only with headgear but the complete equipment of the German infantry. Its not cheap (129 euro) but worth every penny :D

See the website of Verlag Militaria for further information.

Thanks for the information, have been contemplating the purchase. It's a "for sure" now.

The Artillery one should be here by Christmas as well. :D
The one on the Belgian Army should arrive a bit earlier. (hope so)

Just received notice of the Artillery book in the series. It came listed from the seller, "On Military Matters".
Should be here in a few weeks. I recommend getting their newsletter.

I received the two volume set on the German Infantry for a Christmas gift. It's an outstanding set with excellent photographs. If you're on the fence about it, don't be. The cost is worth the product. I plan on buying the companion books in the series.

I have checked out Tony's coffee table versions of this, they are excellent. I just have to wrap my head around the "price" for now :( . I have one more year of spousal support to pay!
