Max Hastings is best known as an acclaimed journalist and military historian. But what is perhaps less well known is his love of the countryside and its pursuits, above all fishing and shooting, which he indulges as often as he can escape his urban working environment. In this classic selection of gentle, contemplative musings, Max Hastings shares some of his favourite rural moments; tramping the snipe bogs of Waterford; dogging hedges in Hampshire and moors in Sutherland; casting a fly from Scotland to Iceland and Alaska; and shooting in India and the west of Ireland. Combining a journalist's knack for storytelling with the enthusiasm of the dedicated amateur, Outside Days is the perfect companion for anyone who revels in the freedom of the outdoors. Max Hastings is an acclaimed journalist and author of over 20 books. He is renowned for his works of military history, such as Bomber Command and Das Reich. But he is a country boy at heart and he enjoys fishing and shooting as often as he can escape to the great outdoors.

Author Bio: Sir Max Hastings

Author Bio: Sir Max Hastings

Sir Max Hastings is the author of twenty-six books, most about conflict and several made the New York Times bestsellers list. Between 1986 and 2002 he served as editor-in-chief of the London Daily Telegraph, then editor of the Evening Standard. He has won many prizes both for journalism and his books have been bestsellers translated around the world. He chronicles Vietnam with the benefit of vivid personal memories: first of reporting in 1967-68 from the United States, where he encountered many of the war’s decision-makers including President Lyndon Johnson, and then of successive assignments in Indochina for newspapers and BBC TV. He rode a helicopter out of the US Saigon embassy compound during the 1975 final evacuation.
