Paul Birdsall Prize Recipients

The Paul Birdsall Prize in European Military and Strategic History was established in 1985 by a generous gift from Professor Hans Gatzke, who remained anonymous until his death.

The Birdsall Prize is currently awarded biennially for the most important work published in English on European military or strategic history since 1870. Paul Birdsall (d. 1970) was a historian of European diplomatic and military affairs and a foreign service officer.
