British Campaign Medals 1914-2005
This book surveys the medals awarded to British personnel for military service around the world and in two world wars. During the course of the twentieth century the role of Britain’s peace keeping forces changed considerably-from imperial conquest and peace-keeping to full scale participation in two world wars, campaigns from the withdrawal from the Empire and finally service as a prominent member of the United Nations And NATO. 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.
