Recommended Posts

Clyde Tinklepaugh posted this on OMSA.org a few days ago, and I hope he doesn't mind my reposting it here. (I don't have any additional details on this book yet, but if anyone else does please share!)

 

An encyclopedia of Syrian medals has been released by OMSA member Adnan Georges Jaroua. This is a massive hard cover book, 9.5″ x 13″ and weighs 5.5 pounds. All illustrations are in color.

In the encyclopedia there are:

241 orders, medals, decorations and insignia, arranged with their information and pictures, divided according to the countries participating with Syria in their issuance. they are divided as follows: 126 orders, 59 medals, 13 decorations, and 43 insignia.

105 Syrian orders, 26 United Arab Republic orders, 16 Syrian Arab orders, 59 orders during the French mandate period, 25 Syrian-Russian medals, and 10 Syrian international medals.

4 Sashes, 15 medallions, 70 badges, 32 award certificates, one administrative order and one purchase authorization.

On top it says his name is Adnan - in the given mail address it says Adan - just a missing N?

My copy arrived yesterday, and it's very impressive. 350 pages, hard cover, with color photographs and drawings. As Owain said, it's entirely in Arabic, but the names of the medals are also given in English which is a big help for quick identification.

The coverage is impressively thorough: Historical overview, glossary, and nice extras such as the medals awarded by the French Mandate, the UAR period (which includes many Egyptian medals), Russian and UN medals related to Syria, unit insignia of the French Mandate period, some photos of award certificates, and indexes and bibliography.

Some random pages from the book...

The book also comes with a four-page brochure describing the contents of the book and the author.
