As the title says: Did most of the Russian soldiers use helmets? I have gotten the impression that in the Red Army, field caps were more common than in the other armies, but is there any truth to this? Was field caps mostly used by second-line infantry, artillery crews and the like, where head protection wasn't as important? Or was it common for soldiers at the front? If so, to what extent? I'm mostly thinking about summer here. I think that in the winter at least, helmets were less common since they didn't provide enough warmth. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
