BOOK – FOR VALOUR: THE HISTORY OF THE IRON CROSS AND WOUND BADGE IN GERMAN SOUTHWEST AFRICA 1914-1918 by GORDON McGREGOR.
This is a consignment item. It covers the awarding of the 1914 Iron Cross and the German Wound Badge in Southwest Africa during World War One. The soft cover book was published in 2005. It contains examples of an Iron Cross’s Urkunde (Award Document), including the numerous formats used. It also lists the numbers and types of Iron Crosses awarded (i.e., 1st and 2nd Class and a breakdown of 2nd Class Combatants and Non Combatants), as well as the soldiers who were awarded the 2nd Class.
It is a useful research book, and can help confirm which Colonial Southwest African soldiers were awarded the Iron Cross.
