Pressestimmen

This is an extraordinarily detailed and deeply researched account of a much neglected subject. HISTORICAL JOURNAL Will be an invaluable source of reference for decades to come. JOURNAL OF INTERDISCIPLINARY HISTORY A lavishly illustrated and detailed survey. JOURNAL OF MODERN HISTORY The detail the author goes in to is simply astonishing. (...) An interesting account of the revival of these three great orders (Orders of the Garter, Thistle and Bath) which had fallen into a kind of desuetude before the period in question. MEDAL NEWS
