Description
 
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 forces changed considerably--from imperial conquest and peace-keeping for full-scale participation in two world wars, campaigns for the withdrawal from Empire and finally service as a prominent member of the United Nations and NATO.

The campaign medals awarded for these military actions have become a popular field for collectors, since the majority of British awards were officially named, this making it possible to research the military career of an individual or regiment. Collectors feel that the objects in their collection give them a vivid and personal link with the people and events of the past and with major incidents in Britain's military history.
