4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Book, Misleading Title !, 13 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harry's War: The True Story of the Soldier Prince (Paperback)
This book is an interesting read, but the title
is somewhat misleading.
The sub title " The True Story of The Soldier
Prince" is fair enough, but when you consider
that at the time of writing (2008) Prince Harry
had only been allowed 77 days deployment
in Afghanistan then the title "Harry's War" is
something of a misnomer.

The first 100 or so pages deal with the childhood
years of the Prince in relation to the tragic
and untimely death of his mother, Diana.
The title and structure of the book seem to suggest
that the whole of Harry's life has been a 'war',
his social faux pas being made much of by the
author who uses quotes from his media colleagues
and connections.

None of this does the Prince any favours,
particularly as he is still finding his feet
in a media controlled world.
It is to be hoped that the Press, including
Robert Jobson, leave this fine young man alone
long enough to make his mark on the world and
not simply try to make money out of him.

Worth buying for someone who knows little
about Prince Harry, but the author does not
offer any insights into this young life that
could not have been found in newspapers or on
some Internet pages.
Published 2008,
252 pages, 16 pages of colour photographs.
