For the more mobile and open warfare of World War II, the Army adopted the famous M1 Steel Helmet, which covered more of the head.
However, battle casualty survey studies during World Wars I and II and the Korean War have shown that the primary wounding agent among the WIA and the KIA casualties was the fragmentation-type weapon.The World War II experiences are universal except for the surveys of some of the Pacific island campaigns where small arms missiles accounted for a greater proportion of casualties. Well there are several improvements on the straps but for what it is worth many armies have large quantites of this matterial, that can not be easily destroyed.After all, they can do their job quite well, even if they are heavier than modern kevlar helmets.After World War II, fragment simulators in a range of 5 calibers were widely used in ballistics evaluation tests of prospective ballistic materials for helmets and body armor.
It was heavy and hot, but it provided good protection and was useful for a wide variety of other "unofficial" purposes, such as pounding in tent stakes or boiling water.
The Riddell type of suspension used in football helmets was modified for the inner liner.
The principle of the original Riddell suspension did not contain an adjustable headband, and this feature was developed for the helmet liner.
