by Evans Kerrigan

Condition: Fine/Near Fine

New York, NY: Mallard Press, 1990 Mallard Press, New York. 1990. Hardcover. Stated First Printing. Book is tight, square, and unmarked. Book Condition: Fine. DJ: Near Fine; small puncture on rear cover. Blue cloth boards and spine with bright white lettering on spine. 80 pp. This book describes the development of American medals form the War of independence to the current conflicts in the Middle East. At first, the idea of badges and symbols did not find favor but as the years passed, the Pyramid of Honor was established and was enshrined in law after WWI. This book plots the story of awards to the ordinary fighting man for valor and heroism above and beyond the call of duty. Lavishly illustrated in color, this is the definitive visual reference for American medals. A clean pristine copy.
