Announcing the 2022 Society of the Cincinnati Prize Recipient

The 2022 Society of the Cincinnati Prize honors Col. Kevin J. Weddle for his book The Compleat Victory: Saratoga and the American Revolution (New York: Oxford University Press, 2021). Colonel Weddle’s deeply researched examination of the Saratoga campaign of 1777 provides a comprehensive analysis of the American and British military strategies that resulted in the American victory, which in turn captured the attention of the world and changed the course of the war.

Colonel Weddle is professor of military theory and strategy and Elihu Root Chair of Military Studies at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. A West Point graduate, he served in the U.S. Army for twenty-eight years on active duty in command and staff positions in the United States and overseas, including operations Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom. He conducted significant research for his book in our library as the recipient of the Society of the Cincinnati Scholars’ Grant in 2007.
