Here's the brief CC Communication:
Professor Emeritus of History Dennis Showalter has been named the recipient of the Pritzker Military Museum and Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing. The Pritzker Literature Award — which includes a gold medallion, citation, and $100,000 honorarium — recognizes and honors the contributions of a living author for a body of work dedicated to enriching the understanding of military history and affairs. “The importance of teaching history at military academies and advanced institutions is that the tendency of these institutions is to go toward engineering and technical subjects, and to be focused on specific strategic problems. Military history itself is as vital to the military education institutions as oxygen,” says Showalter.
