HuffPost's "Beyond the Battlefield" Wins a Pulitzer Prize
We're always excited when publishers in our network win awards, but this one goes beyond our wildest expectations. The Huffington Post's "Beyond the Battlefield" series -- published as an eBook through BookBrewer in December -- just won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.
The book is a collection based on a 10-part series by journalist David Wood about the physical and emotional challenges facing American soldiers severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan during a decade of war. The stories are available as an eBook for the Kindle, Apple iBooks and Kobo, as well as in a special section on Huffingtonpost.com.
This is The Huffington Post's first Pulitzer, and the HuffPost staff couldn't be more proud.
"We are delighted and deeply honored by the award, which recognizes both David’s exemplary piece of purposeful journalism and HuffPost’s commitment to original reporting that affects both the national conversation and the lives of real people," said Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group on their site.
"From the beginning, one of the core pillars of HuffPost’s editorial philosophy has been to use narrative and storytelling to put flesh and blood on data and statistics, and to help bear witness to the struggles faced by millions of Americans. We are very grateful to have won for this series, the culmination of David Wood’s long career as a military correspondent, and an affirmation that great journalism is thriving on the Web."
