Historian Gerhard L. Weinberg has received a $100,000 lifetime achievement prize for excellence in military writing.

The Pritzker Military Library Literature Award, founded in 2007, honors writers who have "profoundly enriched the public understanding of American military history," prize officials said Monday.

Weinberg, 81, has written numerous books on World War II, including "A World at Arms" and "World in the Balance." The award is sponsored by the Chicago-based Tawani Foundation.
