BRIAN NEMEC PICKELHAUBE AND HELMET COLLECTOR

BOOKS IN MY LIBRARY


updated 23 Sept 01

In order to help other collectors, I will list some of the books in my library. Most of these books are no longer being published.

These books cover the topics of helmets, medals and uniforms. They will be listed by topic. They are in Austrian (German), English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, and Polish. The books that have good helmet information, but are not just about helmets will be listed as such.

They will be listed by Title, Author, Date of publication, and Publisher.


I will add to this list as I have time, so check in again.


THESE ARE THE BOOKS I THINK A SERIOUS COLLECTOR OF PICKELHAUBEN SHOULD HAVE


CASQUES A POINTE et coiffures prestigieuses de l'armée allemande 1842-1918 tome I Troupes a' Pied, Jean-Louis Larcade, 1983, Uniformes (French)

CASQUES A POINTE et coiffures prestigieuses de l'armée allemande 1842-1918 tome II Troupes a' Cheval, Jean-Louis Larcade, 1985, Uniformes (French)

Militärische Kopfbedeckungen der Kaiserzeit, Reiner Herrmann, 2000, Motorbuch Verlag (German)

The Pickelhaube Volume 1 Line Infantry, J.A.Bowman, 1989, Imperial Publication

The Pickelhaube Volume 2 Wartime, Ersatz, Reserve & Artillery, J.A.Bowman, 1992, Imperial Publication

Pickelhauben (spiked helmets), Eric Johansson, 1982, H.M.S. Publications

NOTE: The above book in German can be understood without an understanding of German. With a dictionary and a little effort, the book will be a major asset. The French books above have a great number of photos and cover the pickelhaube in great detail. These books will require more effort then the German book.
