steel helmet generals

Post by offizier1916 » 16 Jan 2019 12:29

on some occasions, german generals wore steel helmets instead of the Schirmmütze. Was there a specific reasoning behind that?

Really not combat steel helmet.
Usually they wore fiber helmets during acts like military parades, if they were in command of the parade troops.
