Review

...a comprehensive guide to medals and decorations ranging from the Order of Canada to the Victoria Cross. There's hardly a page without colour pictures, and the book's as handy for browsing as it is for reference. - Artsforum, October 1, 2005

Since the creation of the Canadian honours system in 1967, more than 250,000 Canadians have been rewarded, yet little has been written about it. This full-colour illustrated book recounts the history of Canada's various national orders, decorations, and medals, from New France's Croix de St. Louis, through the British Order of the Bath, to modern Canadian awards such as the General Campaign Star.

Each award in the modern Canadian honours system is examined in detail, including historical background, design, and criteria for bestowal. With special chapters on heraldry, protocol, and the proper mounting and wear of medals, it is an essential reference for anyone interested in Canadian honours.
