awesome helmets

The image of the dead soldier in a truck is often shown in a newsreel for the battle of Kursk?

I am sure they just combine various reels on the History Channel (AHC) to make it more interesting.

I often see images of 1944 pattern SS camo tunics for images of the battle of France in 1940.

Honestly, every time I saw that newsreel of the tortoise helmet I thought if I would have had the nerve to take it off the body. I guess in combat emotions are greatly different.
