I purchased this book to find out what some of the patches my dad had as a Marine during WWII. He never talked about the war. The book was of no help. Obviously it is no totally complete.

Medals and decorations are defined as adornments worn or displayed, issued as personal awards for outstanding service, bravery, or a specific achievement or in commemoration of an historic event, or a great personage. Medals are small, flat pieces of metal, commonly disks but often in the shape of a cross or star, they usually bear a decorative image or design and an inscription.

In ancient Greece and Rome the commemorative functions was usually the province of coins. Not until the Renaissance were medals created as wrks of art per se, crafted by such artists as the Italian medalist and painter Pisanello, the goldsmith and sculptor Benvenuto Cellini, and the German master Albrecht Durer as well as noted medal designers of the 20th Century, the American sculptor Paul Manship and the Swedish sculptor Carl Milles.

Medals were awarded for military valor in the 15th Century, but not until the end of the 18th Century did medals commemorating victorious engagements become widespread. Medals awarded by the European countries for outstanding military service include the French Medaille Militaire (1852) and Croix de Guerre (1915), the British Victoria Cross (1865) and Distinguished Service Cross (1940), the German Ion Cross (1813), and the Norwegian Order of Saint Olav (1847).

Service Medals awarded by the U.S. Army and Navy for participation in specific campaigns include, for example, the Civil War Campaign Medal and the Victory Medal for service in World War I or World War II. The U.S. Army confers the Distinguished Service Cross (1918) on those displaying exceptional heroism and the Order of the Purple Heart, instituted by George Washington in 1782. U.S. Air Force medals include the Distinguished Flying Cross (1926), awarded to those who exhibit extraordinary heroism or achievement in aerial flight. U.S. Navy and Marine Corps medals include the Distinguished Service Medal (1919), the Navy Cross (1919), awarded for heroism in combat, and the Navy and Marine Corps Medal (1942), the award given for heroism in non-combat situations.

The highest military award bestowed by the U.S., the Medal of Honor (instituted in 1861 and first awarded during the Civil War), is granted in the name of the U.S. Congress to those who have risked their lives above and beyond the call of duty. The Good Conduct Medal is awarded for exemplary behavior to all enlisted members of the armed forces (except for the U.S. Air Force) who complete so many years of active duty.

Other military medals are given for specific outstanding performance, as for example, excellence in marksmanship. Ribbons are either attached or worn alone. Stars and other devices are added to indicate particulars, such as the campaigns in which the wearer participated.
