At a time of imperial expansion, British forces were almost constantly in action against major powers, in wars of conquest, or in expeditions on the fringes of Empire, such as the North West Frontier, southern Africa or Burma. This book outlines the medals issued to British soldiers and sailors for military service.

4.0 out of 5 stars British Campaign Medals 1815-1914 8 Jan. 2012
Format:Paperback
Nice clear photographs of the medals but could have done with a maybe more examples of the obverse of some medals.
Most of the photographs are in colour.
Main fault, for anyone who's after a quick reference, is the lack of a detailed index but with only forty pages this isn't a major problem.
