Warriors by Max Hastings
Warriors: Book summary and reviews of Warriors by Max Hastings
What it means to be a warrior has become a pertinent issue of our time. What makes some men and women perform extraordinary deeds on the battlefield? What makes them risk their lives in the pursuit of victory? And do their successes or failures in combat bring them happiness, melancholy, or fulfillment?
'Hastings's attitude toward his subjects is respectful, but....not worshipful....often remarking upon the disappointments these men - and one woman - faced in peacetime, when their talents were no longer valued. His sentences are impeccably polished, occasionally revealing a dry wit.' - PW.
