NEW YORK —

An award-winning and best-selling World War II historian is turning to an older conflict for his next project: the American Revolution.

Henry Holt and Company announced Thursday that Rick Atkinson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and reporter, plans a trilogy covering the years 1775-1781.

Atkinson recently completed an acclaimed trilogy of World War II books with "The Guns at Light," which came out last week. He won a Pulitzer for the first volume, "An Army at Dawn," published in 2002.

The 60-year-old Atkinson is a former Washington Post reporter and editor. No title or release date has been set for his first book on the American Revolution.
