News is filtering in from Stockholm that the Osprey Men-at-Arms series is due to be honoured at this years Nobel Prize Ceremony. The shock decision to nominate the Men-at-Arms series for the Nobel Prize for Literature has come as a shock especially as it is the first time that the prize is being awarded to a group of books rather than an individual author.
A judge on the panel said that the decision to nominate the series was born out of an "admiration for the life span and extent of the Men-at-Arms canon". She went on to comment that "over the last 40 years the Men-at-Arms series has developed in line with history. Over the 450 titles published it is possible to witness, not only the progress of military history throughout the ages, but also the change in the way military history is perceived over time, from the height of the Cold War through to the fall of the Berlin Wall".
Further details will follow as soon as they are made available...
