More About the Author

Sir Max Hastings is the author of twenty-five books, many of them about war. He was educated at Charterhouse and University College, Oxford, which he quit after a year to become a journalist. Thereafter he reported for newspapers and BBC TV from sixty-four countries and eleven conflicts, notably the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Vietnam and the 1982 Battle for the Falklands. Between 1986 and 2002 he was editor-in-chief of The Daily Telegraph, then editor of the Evening Standard. He has won many prizes both for journalism and for his books, most recently the 2012 Chicago Pritzker Library's $100,000 literary award for his contribution to military history, and the RUSI's Westminster Medal for his international best-seller 'All Hell Let Loose'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Having received this for Christmas 1999 I could not put it down. Anyone familiar with the writing of Max Hastings from The Field will thoroughly enjoy this book. He covers a wide variety of subjects, from stalking through rough shooting to driven game (partridge, pheasant and grouse) as well as fishing (salmon and trout). This is the type of book that (a) you will recommend to other people, and (b) you will return to 'dip into' time and time again.
I will now find a copy of his earlier book 'Outside Days' !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly written 31 Dec 2001
Max Hastings is a brilliant writer, and here writes about a subject of which he is deeply passionate. I would recommend Scattered Shots to anyone, and particularly those not well aquainted with country sports as it may help to broaden their understanding at a time when country sports and countryside conservation are not well understood by a majority of people.
