M38 – The German Fallschirmjägers (Paratroopers) in WWII were known as an elite force that fought fierce and fairly. They were credited by US and UK veterans as the toughest soldiers they faced. After the Battle of Crete the Fallschirmjäger were used on all battle fronts primarily as infantry. This helmet is representative of helmets worn in Russia 1943-45 and in France 1944-45. The mix of Green paints was typical in summer use with the famous chicken wire added to stick brush and branches on to the helmet. This was especially needed late in the war when the Germans lost air superiority.
