Medals, Decorations and Orders of WWII 1939-1945 (£20.00 each)

Medals, Decorations and Orders of WWII 1939-1945


By: Alec A. Purves

A companion volume to ‘Medals, Decorations and Orders of the Great war 1914-1918’, this volume both deals with awards instituted during or in connection with the Second War and lists those already extant, together with any relevant amendments which were made arising out of this conflict.

The awards of 41 participating countries are dealt with in alphabetical sequence. One of three appendices lists the various inscriptions that appear on the insignia, with over 160 ribands illustrated in colour and about 80 medals in black and white; this allows the book to be put to good use for identification purposes. Though over 50 years have elapsed since the end of the Second World War, this is the only work to deal solely with the awards given during that period. It can be put to good use by military historians and collectors as well as those many families whose relatives served in some capacity.
