I believe our modern helmet is based on the German Stahlhelm M1942. Can’t beat German engineering I guess.

I remember watching a show about that Stahlhelm and how it was an amazing piece of both design and metallurgy. It gave better coverage and (hence) protection than allied helmets, and it was also made of a more durable metal. Hard to beat the German engineers when they are on their game.
