TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 March 2013
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.

Captain Harry Windsor was an agent of the British Intelligence Corps on the Northwest Frontier. Disguised as a native (but given away by his blue eyes and ginger hair), he was armed only with two Bolinger bottles, while his Oriental sidekick, Chung, made devastating use of a cricket bat, which he called "clicky-ba".

"Clicky-ba thundered, and men with crushed heads squirmed on the path. Dreadful sounds echoed up the cliffs as the vanguard of the Taliban army swung this way and that. In sheer desperation they attacked, but found themselves opposed not only by Chung, but by the twin bottles of Harry, The Wolf of Kabul. He used those bottles with a skill that had yet to be equalled. When he struck it was as sure as the attack of a snake. Men dropped. The bottles in the hands of the Wolf were red to the neck."

The true story of Harry's heroism in Afghanistan had Mrs Daz and myself wallowing in a warm bubble bath of patriotic nostalgia.

This has been well written, and starts at the very beginning of Harrys life, through training, to finally going to Afgan. It was one book that, for me was hard to put down.
