Folio picture researcher in award shortlist

Julie McMahon honoured in Longman/History Today award for work on Stalingrad

The Folio Society's Julie McMahon has been shortlisted for Historical Picture Researcher of the Year in the Longman/History Today Awards for her work on the Folio Society edition of Antony Beevor's Stalingrad. Julie sourced an extraordinary range of images including rare photographs from Russian archives. These include images of Soviet soldiers during battle, German troops leading horse-drawn wagons through the snow; a twelve-year-old boy used by the Red Army as a scout; and Soviet women among the wreckage. As well as photographs, Julie found colour reproductions of two propaganda posters - one from each side - that the author particularly wanted to have included, and a reproduction of the Fortress Madonna, an object of devotion to the German soldiers during the siege.

The prize, worth £500 to the winner, will be awarded at a ceremony at the Museum of London on 12 January next year. We would like to congratulate Julie, who expressed her own thanks to Stuart Brown, the book's designer, and editor James Matthews. You can read more about the edition here.
