Response to Interesting but. . .
I don't have this book but I suspect since the publication is about the actual medals, it would stand to reason that the 1939-43 Star would be omitted since the actual medal was never struck until after the war -- becoming the 1939-45 Star sometime after 8 May 1945.
Awards given to next of kin of 1939-43 Star recipients in the postwar years were of the 1939-45 Star despite their service records indicating the earlier version.
