Description

Australians Awarded - A Comprehensive Reference for Military and Civilian Awards, Decorations and Medals to Australians Since 1772.
The focus of this new book is on the awards to Australian recipients from the Imperial Order and Decorations through the two World Wars and later conflicts, to our own Australian system of recognition. This book is aimed to provide both information of general interest, as well as become the definitive guide and reference work for the historian, those interested in Australiana, libraries, military museums and medal collectors. This is the first book published, in depth, covering such a diverse field and no doubt some sections will require more research for any further editions. Whilst this edition does cover awards and decorations of the earlier Boer War, together with Sudan wars awards to Australians that foreign governments have seen fit to confer on Australian service personnel have not been included. This book has been written in a very relaxed style, and still maintaining the accuracy of the various awards and decorations, making it a joy to read even for those with only a slight interest in the subject matter. Current market valuations of medals and decorations have been included for those who may have monetary interests in medal collecting.
