This is a memoir of Max Hastings trips to conflicts all over the globe over several decades.
Biafra, Vietnam (several times), Northern Ireland, Israel, the Falklands and several others.
He writes in a very honest fashion regards himself (he's basically a coward he says) and how many other journalists flat out don't like him because of his perceived advantages (class) and his contacts.
This isn't a campaign journal just his memories of events and people he shared them with.
Like all of Hastings writing its very accessible.
