Format: Hardcover
As the co-author, I can say we accomplished what we intended: a photo documentation on operational jet-age flight and space helmets from around the world. As stated in the foreward, with few exceptions, we cover helmets with their major variations that are/were operational, not experimental. Especially interesting are the high-altitude models which are rarely seen and limited in production.

I've covetted this book from afar since first seeing it in the 90's, but have never managed to find a local copy since. I took a chance and somehow managed to get this and the companion volume for the price of one of these books on eBay. Outstanding value. I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in military kit, or in the evolution of military aviation safety equipement and headgear. It is true geek porn! A true must own for anyone into cold-war military aviaition especially.

Format: Hardcover
Excellent review of the all the basic flight helmets. Outstanding photos. Only downside I see is that the descriptions/history of each type could be more in-depth. Since there is nothing out there better (that I have seen), it's still a must have for anyone collecting these helmets.
