    Description

    From Max Hastings comes a collection of talks and lectures exploring the wars of the 20th century with the verve, insight and originality that has made him a number one bestselling historian.

    What is war like to live through, for civilian victims, especially women, as well as soldiers, sailors and fliers? Hastings has been a life-long student of warfare, a ‘chronicler of conflict’, working first as a foreign correspondent on battlefields, then as a prolific prize-winning historian of the 20th century’s greatest struggles. He has now been studying warfare for over fifty years, published thirty books, and given hundreds of talks and lectures. Here are thirteen of the best.

    Addressing questions of truth versus myth and revisiting many last-generation narratives, Hastings leads us through the most important conflicts in recent times. Listen as he explores D-Day, the Dambusters raid, Churchill’s character and achievement as war leader, Vietnam, and—in his most recent book, published in 2022, the Cuban missile crisis—13 days when we came closest to annihilation and which stands as a mirror to the grave threats the world faces today.

    A Career Summary of Hastings’ Work

    Excellent book. Be warned this covers some of his life experiences - but most of the book is made of of essays about his previous writing. He goes through his major books in World Chronology order not the order in which the books were written. He covers the major points and themes of each book adding some personal commentary. Each essay is interesting in its own right and it has made me want to re-read some of his books again. Good stand alone book but even more enjoyable for those who have been reading his books all along.

    Sublime

    Incisive martial insights suffused with deep erudition and a rapier sharp wit. Why didn’t France turn over to a Great Britain the 1000 Luftwaffer POW pilots?
