As the once-mighty Ottoman Empire declined during the 19th century, the British Empire was growing ever stronger. Although their respective fortunes were changing, these two imperial powers became allies on a number of occasions, particularly against the increasingly assertive Russians. Because of this British soldiers and sailors received a variety of Ottoman campaign awards, most commonly the Turkish Crimea Medal. In this excellent, concise, yet detailed book, Mark A. Reid examines the campaign medals awarded by the Ottoman Empire from the early 19th century until the First World War. Reid's book lists known British recipients of some of the medals, gives precise measurements and details of all the awards and has a useful section for collectors on where they can be found and how to spot fakes and reproductions. It has numerous illustrations of the medals, the campaigns for which they were awarded and of the men who received them.
