Colby Award Goes to Norwich Professor

Associate professor of history at Norwich University Steven E. Sodergren won the 2018 Colby Award for his history of Union soldiers and trench warfare in The Army of the Potomac in the Overland & Petersburg Campaigns (LSU Press, 2017). 

The award recognizes a first solo work of fiction or non-fiction that has made a major contribution to the understanding of military history, intelligence operations, or international affairs. Winners receive a $5,000 author honorarium provided through the generosity of the Chicago-based Pritzker Military Foundation. The award and honorarium will be presented to Sodergren at Norwich University during a special fall presentation of the Colby Award, October 3-4, 2018.
