British Campaign Medals 1815-1914
This book outlines the medals issued to British soldiers and sailors for military service across the globe. At the time of imperial expansion, British forces were almost constantly in action-against major powers, in wars of conquest, or in expeditions. Their campaign medals have become a popular field for collectors since, apart from the artistic merit of some awards, most British medals were officially named, making it possible to research the military career of an individual.
