Recensioner i media
`With this collection, Hastings is back on home territory, where he can bring his unique blend of skills as war reporter, and social as well as military historian to bear...This is one of the best and most diverting of his shorter pieces' Evening Standard `All (of the stories) are corking...opinions are stated firmly and with big bold swings of the pendulum. His virtues are clarity and decisiveness - greatly to be admired when it comes to making clear, for the lay reader, roughly what is going on in the fiendishly complex and bloody engagements he describes.' Spectator `A wonderfully eclectic selection...Hastings has written a marvellous book. Wry perceptive and engaging, it lays bare the curious mix of character traits - good and bad - that a successful warrior requires.' Sunday Telegraph `His brisk prose has the qualities of his warriors: clear, decisive, forceful..."Warriors" will enthral everyone.' Daily Telegraph `Brilliant...Hastings combines his consummate skill as a writer with passages of descriptive brilliance to provide a book for the ordinary citizen...He captures the commitment of the fighting servicemen and women...in language that is powerful yet eminently comprehensible. This is a book to entertain.' Sunday Times
