Default MKII helmets of the Second World War and their use in the Italian Campaign

Ciao, I made a book about MKII helmets of WW2. this is a book intro:

The collecting of MKII helmets from the second world war has seen a considerable increase in interest among collectors recently. The enthusiast approaching this sector of militaria collecting for the first time has very few tools available that can at least point him in the right direction. So, taking stock of the knowledge I have acquired and with the help of various collector friends, I thought it might be useful to publish this guide on MKII helmets in the second world war and their use during the Italian Campaign. There is certainly a lot more to discover but this is a starting point.
A tip, before making a purchase, always ask the opinion of other collectors because a trained eye can definitely help you in this jungle of post war use, fakes, tampering... and beautiful helmets that still know how to tell their story.
A big thank you goes to Francesco Braneschi, it is also thanks to him that this "research" came about, to his passion and to our constant exchanges of opinion on this sector of the militaria.
In an attempt to understand something more I cannot fail to thank Marco Visani, super adviser with his infinite bibles.
A thankyou also to those who contributed with their time, photographs, information, and much more: Alessandro Zentile, Antonio Bonanno, Aaron Delaney, Brendon Ellis, Cristian Rubiola, David Yeomans, Dennis van Vugt, Fabio Ortolani, Francesco Saverio Giovagnoli, Giovanni Righini , Ivo Beute, Leonardo Biserni, Mark Kozowy, Massimo Costa, Paolo Zamma, Peter Young, Steven Britton and the Boys of the Combat Road association. Thank you.
And finally, thank you to Fabio Roncella for his essay on the battle of Montegabbione, our roots are in history.
Buona lettura!
