British historian and author Antony Beevor has won the $100,000 2014 Pritzker Military Museum and Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing.
Last year’s recipient, Tim O’Brien, revealed via the Pritzker Military Museum and Library website that Beevor will receive the $100,000 (£58,865) award, along with a medallion and citation, at the Museum and Library’s annual gala in Chicago on 8th November.
The award’s Screening Committee chairman, John W Rowe, said: “The committee was unanimous in recommending Antony Beevor as this year’s recipient. Mr Beevor is at the height of his powers as a military historian, and he is a wonderful representative of the tradition the Museum and Library has established with the previous recipients.”
