Prince Harry is arguably one of the most recognised faces in the world today, and over the years has attracted both criticism and praise. In his 29 years he has served on the frontline in Afghanistan and taken lives there, he has set up his own charities, undertaken his first solo tour representing his grandmother The Queen, has been a figure of controversy, and has won a humanitarian award. Equally at home in military uniform, black tie or jeans and baseball cap, Prince Harry certainly grabs life with both hands and rides it at 100 miles an hour. Harry: A Biography sets out to document the full, true story behind the popular prince as he steps out of the shadow of his older brother Prince William. Covering his early years, the breakdown of his parents' marriage, the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, his relationship with his father and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, his time at Sandhurst and serving in Afghanistan, his charity walk to the North Pole, the women in his life, his partying, and his first solo tour. Comprehensive yet entirely accessible, Harry: A Biography paints a revelatory portrait of the 'coolest' member of the royal family.On his first tour in 2007, he was not long out of his teens, holding the most junior position of second lieutenant; now in 2012 he was a grown man and a captain. He would also be undertaking a different duty, as copilot gunner of an Apache attack helicopter. ... The pilot sits in the back, and the copilot gunner is up front and in charge. ... If that means shooting someone whoa#39;s shooting them, then wea#39;ll do it.
