The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of four 2016 Bradley Prizes will be presented to Andrew Roberts, the respected British historian.  Roberts has written extensively on modern European history and military history.

His books include Napoleon:  A Life; Masters and Commanders:  How Four Titans Won the War in the West, 1941-1945, and A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900.  He received his Ph.D. from Gonville and Caius College of Cambridge University, and he frequently lectures at universities around the world.

The Bradley Prize will be awarded to Roberts at a ceremony to be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C,. on Wednesday, June 15.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

"Professor Andrew Roberts's work has increased the public's understanding of pivotal world events," Bradley Foundation president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe said.  "His important research and writings are crucial to understanding the context of historical events and their impact on modern times."

The selection was based on nominations submitted by more than 200 prominent individuals across the country and chosen by the Bradley Prizes Selection Committee.

"Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Professor Roberts whose work inspires an appreciation of history and freedom, with the hope that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields," Grebe said.
