The steel helmet (Stahlhelm) is probably one of the most recognizable symbols of the Third Reich, next to the Swastika. It's lineage, however, originates from the German sallets of the fifteenth century and was revived during the First World War. (Indeed, the 1916 helmet was still used by members of the Volksturm and reserve units, rescue and fire crews in German cities, and anti-aircraft units throughout the war.) The helmet changed very little during the war; the original M1935 helmet undergoing slight modification in 1940 (ventilation hole) and 1942, when the edges of the helmet were no longer crimped under to ease production.
