Military Award for Peace
Posted by: Donna Seaman

Kudos and thanks to the judges for the W. Y. Boyd Award for Excellence in Military Fiction:  Chair Robert Schnare, Naval War College, Newport, R.I.; Lawrence Clemens, United States Naval Academy, Nimitz Library, Annapolis, Md., James Schenkel, Library of Congress, Washington DC; Nancy Davenport, Washington, D.C.; Maxine Reneker, Monterey, Calif.; and Ronald Steensland, Panama City, Fla. Why? Because they selected Richard Bausch’s beautiful novel Peace  for the 2009 winner of an award that honors outstanding fiction set during a period when America is at war. Established by W. Y. Boyd, author of a trilogy that includes A Rendezvous with Death, the award recognizes the service of American veterans. Bausch, a writer of profound empathy and clarity, has written about honor and sacrifice with artistry and insight in Peace, and I couldn’t agree more wholeheartedly with the jury’s choice.
