In this episode, Simon speaks to Max Hastings, the best-selling military historian and erstwhile foreign correspondent and newspaper editor. They discussed Max’s early career – how 1960s and 70s Fleet Street really was, without the benefit of rose-tinted spectacles – his experiences in the Falklands in 1982, the development of his book writing, from early ventures to his doorstopper World War Two histories, and the evolution of military history as a genre.
