David Kilcullen has won the Walkley Award, the Australian version of the Pulitzer, for his story “Blood Year: Terror and the Islamic State”. The judges said:

"A rare and critical account from inside the war room, Australian military adviser David Kilcullen sets out the strategies he helped the US government write for its Global War on Terror. From 9/11 to Afghanistan, Iraq and now IS, Kilcullen brilliantly reveals in compelling and controversial detail the ambitions and subsequent failures of the West in dealing with the new threat. Gripping from beginning to end."
