Format: Paperback
OK, we are not talking about a book for experts here, but £4.99 wont buy a lot these days, however if you are a collector or researcher with even the slightest interest in British medals, this is one book you should certainly buy.

It is a splendid and invaluable source of reference covering the war and campaign medals awarded to British service personnel between 1914 and the present day. It is smack up to date, it is very readable, handy in size and provides more than enough information to cover general queries and also points you in the right direction for further research, medal specialists and auction houses.

Besides detailing the basic history behind the award, readers will find the excellent quality full colour photographs exceptionally useful for both reference and recognition purposes.

I am a great lover of these little books - I have owned and used them personally for my own research and collecting purposes for over forty years and they have never failed me yet.

For the price of a sandwich and a can of cola (which last you ten minutes), you have a book here that will serve you a lifetime.

I brought this book for my Dad and he is very happy with it. The book was delivered really quickly in about 2 days which was impressive. The book is quite thin but this reflects the price. The book has colour pictures which is great. Overall my dad was really impressed by this book.

I am a newbie to the world of military medals and really don't know anything at all...I bought this book as I am creating a family tree and wanted to learn more about the medals that were awarded to my Grandfather and great Grandfather. This book is brilliant and very easy to understand. The pages are well laid out with very easy to follow text and the full colour images are a God send. You really can't go wrong!

My own fault for not fully reading the description. This is only a small little book. I guess it covers what it should do, I just had the idea that it might be more of a book, rather than a pamphlet type thing. Next time I will spend a few quid more and buy a hardback reference book.

What more is there to say? A useful reference not for the expert but if you either have a couple of grandads medals you want to identify or you have found a relative on your family tree was awarded a medal and you want to know more this is a useful little reference
