Huffington Post Wins Pulitzer Prize; Read the eBook

The seven-year-old Huffington Post has won its first Pulitzer Prize for “Beyond the Battlefield,” a ten-part series about veterans by military correspondent David Wood. The series is also collected in a $4.99 eBook published by The Huffington Post.

Here’s more about the eBook: “As HuffPost’s senior military correspondent, David spent nine months speaking with severely wounded veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition to soldiers and their families, he interviewed more than two dozen military surgeons, combat medics, rehabilitation therapists, prosthetics engineers, nurses, operating room technicians and medical officials at the Pentagon, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and military hospitals and treatment facilities across the country.”
