Historian Allan R. Millett to Receive 2008 Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement

From the press release:
CHICAGO, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Allan R. Millett has been selected to receive the 2008 Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing. The $100,000 honorarium, citation and medallion, sponsored by the Chicago-based Tawani Foundation, will be presented at the Library's annual Liberty Gala on October 4, 2008 at Chicago's Drake Hotel. The announcement was made today [I'm a few days late, this was June 23] via Internet webcast by the Library's President and Founder, COL (IL) James N. Pritzker IL ARNG (Ret.), at http://www.pritzkermilitarylibrary.org/.

The Pritzker Military Library Literature Award recognizes a living author for a body of work that has profoundly enriched the public understanding of American military history. The recipient's contributions may be academic, non-fiction, fiction, or a combination of any of the three, and his or her work should embody the values of the Pritzker Military Library.

The library also podcasts: go to the Pritzker Military Library Web site and find them on the home page, or search for "Pritzker" on the iTunes store.

Congratulations to Dr. Millett, leatherneck and historian, for his award.
