Product Overview

The first and only comprehensive examination of all decorations and medals that may be awarded to Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel for heroism, achievement and service. Features never-before-published historical information on the background and development of each medal, while also providing in-depth discussion of award criteria, design and recipients. Decorations examined include combat heroism awards such as the Navy Medal of Honor, Navy Cross, and Silver Star. Non-combat heroism awards such as the Navy-Marine Corps Medal and Coast Guard Medal are also discussed. All decorations and medals for achievement and service also are examined, ranging from the Navy and Coast Guard Distinguished Service Medals, Legion of Merit, and Meritorious Service Medal to the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation and Achievement Medals and the Combat Action Ribbon. Fifty full color photographs of sea service awards, many of which have never been published, provide context for this unique history. The authors, both of whom retired from the Armed Forces, are experts in the history of U.S. awards and decorations.
