Echoes of War by Paul Schmitt
This ground-breaking volume is a follow-up to the acclaimed Comprehensive Guide to Soviet Orders and
Medals and is an indispensable aid to medal collectors and all
those interested in the 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War or more general
Soviet military history.
It is the only book to feature the widest published collection of
Soviet awards’ serial numbers and awarding information. This
tabulated information is further expounded upon by over 65 actual,
contemporary award citations describing a selection of the feats for
which the awards were granted. All war-period decorations and
their corresponding, sample award citations are covered in
detail. An added bonus is provided by period photographs,
detailed maps to place the items in a historical, as well as
geographical, context, and finally a detailed bibliography enabling the
reader to pursue his own research.
The author has over twenty years’ experience both studying and teaching
the Russian language, collecting Soviet militaria, and has lived and
traveled widely throughout the former Soviet Union.
This limited edition, quality hardcover book contains 192 pages of
color and black-and-white photos, detailed operational and tactical
maps, and serial number data. It is available here for $75
