Historian and author Carlo D'Este has been selected to receive the 2011 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 22, 2011. The announcement was made today via live Internet webcast at

The Pritzker Military Library Literature Award—named for Colonel (IL) J.N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), Founder of the Pritzker Military Library and Tawani Foundation—recognizes a living author for a body of work that has profoundly enriched the public understanding of American military history.

Carlo D'Este's distinguised career as a writer of military history began with his first book, Decision in Normandy (1983), and has continued through Warlord: A Life of Winston Churchill at War, 1874-1945 (2008)—hopefully, with many more volumes to come.

He is a Consulting Historian and Advisory Board member for Armchair General magazine; more information on Mr. D'Este and the Pritzker can be found on our partner site,

Gene Santoro interviewed Carlo D'Este in 2009 for a World War II Conversations feature, which can be read on HistoryNet.
