Book on the medals for new military operations

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I decided to upgrade work on the medals for new military operations (peacekeeping, humanitarian, campaign, etc.) and do it in English
The idea is to include the updated and official legislation, whenever possible, of all known.
Where appropriate an electronic translation for those countries that do not have in English
Any help or contribution to achieving these laws (include a better translation) or pictures is always welcome
The front and reverse images of the medals at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi
This document permanently available at the following link:

Thanks for your help
