Mark Zuehlke Wins the 2014 Pierre Berton Award!

Mark Zuehlke Wins the 2014 Pierre Berton Award!

September 2014

Our congratulations to Mark Zuehlke, author of the Canadian Battle Series, who is the recipient of the prestigious 2014 Pierre Berton Award. This award, given out by Canada’s National History Society, celebrates those who have brought Canadian history to a wider audience. Zuehlke will receive the award, which includes a $5,000 prize, from His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada on Monday, November 3rd in Ottawa at Rideau Hall.

Zuehlke's Canadian Battle Series is the most detailed account of any army during World War II ever written by a single author. The bestselling series has continued to confirm Zuehlke’s reputation as one of the nation’s leading popular military historians. As Canada’s National History Society notes on their website, “In granting the 2014 Governor General’s History Award for Popular Media: the Pierre Berton Award, Canada’s National History Society recognizes [Mark Zuehlke’s] extraordinary work in ensuring that our military heritage is not forgotten. He has given all of us a greater understanding of vital aspects of Canadian history.”

Late this October, D&M is releasing the eleventh book in the Canadian Battle Series: Forgotten Victory: First Canadian Army and the Cruel Winter of 1944-45. It relates the untold story of how the Canadian Army paved the way for an Allied victory in Europe in WWII through an attack against the Rhineland. Despite Canada’s involvement in this important turning point in the war, the Rhineland Campaign figures little in our national memory of WWII. In Forgotten Victory, Zuehlke seeks to redress this historical oversight.

Mark Zuehlke has worked as a journalist, been educated as a historian and written award-winning fiction and non-fiction. In 2006, his Canadian Battle Series book Holding Juno won the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize. He has also written six historical works outside of the series, including For Honour’s Sake (Knopf Canada), which won the 2007 Canadian Author’s Association Lela Common Award for Canadian History. Zuehlke lives in Victoria, B.C. For more info, visit www.zuehlke.ca.
