The World's Bloodiest History and The Buck Stops Here win history awards

January 19, 2011
OUR HISTORY PROJECT, a prominent foundation focused on the preservation and education of United States History, has recognized The World's Bloodiest History and The Buck Stops Here with awards of excellence in its annual best of books contest.

The organization awarded The World's Bloodiest History the 2010 Literary Excellence Gold Medal Award in the "Best in History" category. The unsolicited work was chosen by the staff of Our History Project as a work that has been newly read by a staff member or reviewer during the year 2010.

The Buck Stops Here won the 2010 Literary Excellence Silver Medal Award in the "Best in History" category.

There were more than 200 titles entered in five (5) categories that were included in this year's competition, and two (2) awards are being issued; Gold and Silver; for each category. (Note: Our book The Buck Stops Here won Silver.)

In its original review, posted January 9, 2010, Our History Project said: "The World's Bloodiest History was one of those books I could not put down. I actually read it over and over and went on my own researching quest behind the stories after each chapter. Now, that is something that no other book in my history of reading has compelled me to do." See the entire review here .

On June 7, 2010, the group's review of The Buck Stops Here said: "The book was well researched and documented; over seventy five (75) sources; and brought the reader into the fray of the events that were happening at the time. I liked that it gave you a feel of the everyday person who had little or no knowledge of what was going on, to the turmoil and stress that the Executive Office of the President was facing, both from inside and outside the political wrangling of our country as well as the pressures outside our borders."

Both books are published by Fair Winds Press, one of the Quayside Publishing Group's imprints.
