Foundation
From Naval War College Press
Sept. 20, 2012

NEWPORT, R.I. -- The President of the U.S. Naval War College has awarded prizes to the winners of the annual Hugh G. Nott and Edward S. Miller competitions for articles appearing in the Naval War College Review.
 
The Nott Prize, established in the early 1980s, is given to the authors of the best articles (less those considered for the Miller Prize) in the Review in the previous publishing year. Cash awards are funded by the generosity of the Naval War College Foundation.
 
This year’s winner was Vitaliy Pradun, for “From Bottle Rockets to Lightning Bolts: China’s Missile-Centric Strategy and Its Implications,” which appeared in the Spring 2011 issue ($1,000).
 
The second-place winner was Stephen Downes-Martin, for “Operations Assessment in Afghanistan Is Broken: What Is to Be Done?,” which appeared in our Autumn 2011 issue ($650).

Three articles were selected for honorable mention: “Captains of the Soul: Stoic Philosophy and the Western Profession of Arms in the Twenty-First Century,” by Michael Evans (Winter 2011); “Places and Bases: The Chinese Navy’s Emerging Support Network in the Indian Ocean,” by Daniel J. Kostecka (Winter 2011); and “The Future of Aircraft Carriers,” by Robert C. Rubel (Autumn 2011).
 
The Miller Prize was founded in 1992 by the historian Edward S. Miller for the author of the best historical article appearing in the Naval War College Review in the same period. This year’s winner is Thomas G. Mahnken, for “Asymmetric Warfare at Sea: The Naval Battles off Guadalcanal, 1942–1943” (Winter 2011, $500).
