Winner of the Colby Award announced.


The Colby Award has been won by John Glusman, vice president and executive editor at Harmony Books, for his book entitled Conduct Under Fire.

The Colby Award is reportedly given for a first work of fiction or non-fiction in the area of military history. The award is named after the late ambassador and former CIA director William Colby.

Glusman's book, which is now available in paperback from Penguin, is an account of his father's wartime service as a medical doctor in captivity in the Philippines and Japan, Publishers Weekly reported.

Ian W. Toll was also a co-recipient of this year's award for his book Six Frigates, which is published by Norton.
