Most armies went into the First World War without any head protection, but with their heads sticking out of the trenches making tempting targets the brass had to do something. The Germans were the first to act coming up with the M1916 Helmet Introduced in February of 1916 at Verdun it proved a success reducing the number of head injuries. It was later upgraded with a metal helmet liner attachment resulting in the M1917.
It has a distinctive shape and two lugs on sides that serve as vents and to secure the Stirnpanzer armored plate designed to attach to them.
