Written by Bob Fowler. This 2013 revised edition now includes a new full chapter on the Canadian combat mission in Afghanistan. "Courage Rewarded" deals with a subject not been well covered before regarding the Canadian military – the question of what is "courage in battle." It examines how this quality was shown by Canadian soldiers from the South African War in 1900 to the end of the combat mission in Afghanistan in 2011. Each chapter also describes, up to the end of the Korean War, the awards to Canadian soldiers of British gallantry decorations and, for Afghanistan, the new Canadian decorations of military valour.
