United States Army Medals, badges and Insignia can best be described as a beautifully detailed illustrated history of United States  Army military awards. There is a complete description of each military award issued by the Army  since the Civil War. The criteria, dates of the awards, background, symbolism and attachments are beautifully described in stunning color. The color plates of all United States military decorations, service medals, marksmanship medals and ribbons to include commonly awarded foreign medals and ribbons is presented in the order of precedence as dictated by the Army pyramid of honor. An especially interesting section on how to claim a families veterans medals free from the government also provides detailed explanations of how to read the military DD 214 discharge certificate. There is a marvelous section on how to wear and display Army awards. And without a doubt there is the most complete chapter on the devices for military awards and ribbons that I have ever seen published. It describes every device which can go on an Army medal or ribbon. There is a beautiful section which displays complete color ribbon charts for all the awards and ribbons of the Army,  since 1939  that is probably not available anywhere else in the world. At 220 pages the book is a remarkable value.
