** A MAJOR NEW REFERENCE WORK **

The  Distinguished Service Order 1924-2008

With service and biographical details of recipients.

By James Sutherland

A BRAND NEW HARDBACK BOOK WITH 530 PAGES


This book records the details of over 4,800 recipients, who were awarded the
Distinguished Service Order from 1923 (when the last major work on the Order
by Sir O¹Moore Creagh and E.M. Humphris was published) until 2008. Along
with the details of their awards is other service and biographical
information. Among those who received the Distinguished Service Order are
the names of many famous soldiers, sailors and airmen, but so too are the
names of a great number of other men who joined up, Odid their bit¹, and
returned to civilian life. Many developed highly successful careers in other
fields such as politics, diplomacy, academe, industry, and humanitarian
causes. Some were colourful characters whilst most were relatively unknown
to the wider world. All, however, inspired the men under their command and
were true leaders.


The majority of the awards of the Distinguished Service Order recorded in
this volume were for the Second World War, but pre and post war campaigns,
such as Waziristan, Palestine, Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, the Gulf,
Iraq, and Afghanistan are also included. It will come as no surprise that a
number of the men  were awarded  the Victoria Cross and one the George
Cross. Eight men during this period received a third Bar to the Order and
others received First and Second Bars. This work will be an invaluable
reference for historians, researchers, and those generally interested in
Orders, Military Decorations and Medals.
