2018 Pritzker Literature Award
August 20, 2018
Editor in Chief of Oxford Bibliographies in Military History Dennis Showalter is the recipient of the 2018 Pritzker Military Museum & Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing. Congratulations, Professor Showalter!
“No one who wins this award does it alone. We stand on the shoulders of the men and women of our profession, our colleagues, and above all the students…The importance of teaching history at military academies and advanced institutions is that the tendency of these institutions is to go towards engineering, technical subjects, and to be focused on specific strategic problems. Military history itself is as vital to the military education institutions as oxygen.”
