FOR THE PRICE AND CONTENT ITS WORTH EVERY ONE OF THE 4 STARS
on 4 June 2006
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.
