Serbian and Yugoslavian Orders and Decorations from 1859 to 1941

£98.00

This illustrated volume with more than 600 pages presents a detailed picture of the development of Serbian, and later Yugoslavian, orders, medals and decorations between 1859 and 1941. This spans a period starting with the first commemorative badges of the principality of Serbia and covers a system of awards that reached its zenith in the later Kingdom of Serbia. After the end of the First World War and the creation of the new kingdom encompassing Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, a great diversity of medals and decorations evolved but this ended abruptly with the collapse of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1941.
