    French Foreign Legion Medal Group

    unbelievable family history and documentation, just order the book after reading this post
  2. Trying to put together the history of the 192nd Infantry regiment - could anyone direct me to a current reference in Russian or English that I could buy ? Or perhaps a book seller that could search for such a reference ?
  3. Really proud that you traced a great part of your family history!! Always amazes me how relatives dump these prized reminders of family history and achievement.

    Rymnikskiy Regiment

    Looking for information on the the Rymnikskiy Regiment circa 1917. Can someone kindly help me with information on this unit or point me to a relevant source ?
  10. Just received the book "the Turkish War Medal" by Demir Erman and was rather impressed with his work. I collect Turkish war medals, but had been put off by the lack of reference material on the subject. The book is a solf covered one and rather inexpensive but the author has put his heart and soul into the effort. Quite a bit of background material on the turkish military establishment and the thought that went into establishing the medal. Good sections on the comparison of the turkish medal to the German and Austrian variations, the packaging of the medal, and the various award certificates. Definitely gives the beginner collector a basis to begin his colllection in an intelligent manner at a low investment price. Well recommended for the money.

    Bin Laden is dead

    Until the world's politicans take action against the bankers and financial centers that support terrorism activities this one death will have little effect on the safety of our society.
