Title: German M1916 Stahlhelm combat helmet

Description: World War I German M1916 Stahlhelm combat helmet. The design of this helmet, introduced during the war, resulted in a reduction of head wounds suffered by German soldiers. It differed greatly from the traditional pickelhaube helmets previously worn, which provided little protection to the wearer.
