Hardback, 190 pages.

What is special about this book, and its sister publication dealing with World War II, is that it doesn’t concentrate just on British and Empire medals but rather looks at the awards made to all combatants and whilst it is of particular importance to those dealing with the Great War and immediate aftermath, the inclusion of so many other countries than those we are used to researching gives it a far wider appeal. Anyone who has British groups containing foreign awards or orders will find this book of immense use, regardless of what period they collect, if only to see how those awards they may have in their collections developed over time. Needless to say if you collect World War I medals you have to have this book!
