    Books on the Ottoman Orders and Medals

  11. Hello Albert, The first two books cover all the orders and medals and the last one mentioned in that thread about TWM is giving all the info needed about the Turkish War Medal and Avşar's book is explaining whatever you need to know about two orders, Medjidie abd Osmanie. So to answer your question; yes I think it will be enough. Best wishes Demir
