Colonel David Glantz Awarded

Probably one of the most important military historians of our age, US Army Colonel David Glantz, by the order of Russian Defense Minister, was awarded the Medal For Strengthening Combat Unity. 

Glantz' Award (In Russian). 

There are not enough words to describe a significance of this man and his co-author, Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan House, for modern WW II historiography and, especially, war at the Eastern Front--simply no rivals in knowledge, integrity and scale. Colonel Glantz, I salute you, you did USA and Russia proud. 


Below is the the extract (vypiska) from Sergei Shoigu's Order: For significant personal contribution to strengthening of combat unity and military cooperation.
