Dear colleagues: I would like to share with you the recent publication of my book "Campaign Medals & Orders of Revolutionary & Napoleonic Wars (1792-1815)". For the first time all the medals and orders created by the 14 countries involved in those wars are gathered. 285 decorations with more than 900 full-color photos provided by some 40 auction houses, 15 museums and several private collections throughout Europe. Hardcover. 294 pages.
Now It´s only available on Amazon. Three versions: English, French and Spanish. Here is the link to the English version. I am also attaching some pictures of the inside pages. I must say that it is a self-published work and doesn´t have the support of any publisher, so any action you do, sharing with whoever you think may be interested will be welcome. Thank you very much in advance.
PS: Being a print-on-demand system, Amazon can't ship it to certain countries (Australia, for instance), so anyone who's interested and lives in one of them can contact me and I'll sell it to them directly.
All of the allied countries are listed on an oak tree--a huuuuge symbol of teutonic culture and values
the word weltdenk means that the world stops to reflect (on the war). that's why i hinted at a pacifist/antiwar organization, of which there were many during the 20s, early 30s in germany
Well after I called you out, you are - good
There is absolutely nothing wrong or false as to what I forwarded in regards to what medals a Swede might have gotten in regards to Korea.
This includes a UN medal towards a Swedish Army member serving DURING the Korean war as security detail for the Swedish red cross installation.
This includes a Red Cross medal awarded by the Swedish government for Swedish personal DURING the Korean war.
Nowhere did I say or forward that the medal JohanH was referring to in HIS own link (not yours) was awarded during the Korean war. How am I supposed to know that the medal he has, is the one he referred to in his own link???
Therefore I had asked him to post a pic of his medal.
So again; what is your problem? or with google?
You should be grateful for google, since JohanH found the link to the medal he has thanks to google. And as such helped tremendously in order for you to gain information in regards to the Korean service medal.
