The Order of Military Merit by Christopher McCreedy, MVO.
Pages: 609 in English and French.
This is a beautiful book, printed on fine, heavy paper. The colour photos are exquisite. The content is comprehensive, taking the reader through the first orders to be made available to Canadians (1600s to Canadian-born settlers in New France),through the British orders that became available to Canadians, the beginnings of discussions in early 1940s about a made-in- Canada order of merit for Canadians. It ends with a 50 page listing of all Canadian who have received the OMM since its first presentation in 1972 to 2012.
The book is heavy, about 4 pounds so you probably wont be reading it in bed at night.
The English and French sections are separate rather than pages facing each other.
I dont know if its generally available as yet to the public but the book has a phone number one can call - 1-877-741-8332.
