For Bravery in the Field
This new book is one of a number coming out in the next few months that will concentrate on the Military Medal. This one, by Chris Bate, looks at the awards, actions, and recipients for those Military Medals of the interwar period 1919-1939 which, naturally, included many awards for India. The book is divided up initially into theatres of war and actually starts with Waziristan Operations in 1917 (despite the book's cover which states it only covers from 1919!) moves on to Northern Turkana in 1918 and Afghanistan 1919 up to Palestine in 1936-39. A full alphabetical listing of recipients is also included, as are, very importantly, all the rediscovered citations! Essential reading for any MM collector!
