‘I saw several fellows fall, one fellow coughing up blood and all the time, bullets were hacking about me. I ran for about 70 yards carrying with me all the Lewis gun things I had brought up and dropped breathless into a shell hole headlong onto a German who had been dead for months.’ Harold Drinkwater was not supposed to go to war. He was told he was half an inch too short. But, determined to fight for king and country, he found a battalion that would take him and was soon on his way to the trenches of the Somme. As the war dragged on, Harry saw most of the men he joined up with killed around him. But, somehow, he survived. Soldiers were forbidden from keeping a diary so Harry wrote his in secret, recording the horrendous conditions and constant fear, as well as his pleasure at receiving his officer's commission, the joy of his men when they escaped the trenches for the Italian Front and the trench raid for which he was awarded the Military Cross. Harry writes with such immediacy it is easy to forget that a hundred years have passed. He is by turns wry, exhausted, annoyed, resigned and often amazed to be alive. Never before published, Harry's War is a moving testament to one man's struggle to keep his humanity in the face of unimaginable violence.

On February 28, 2008, to great international surprise, the British Ministry of Defense released a statement acknowledging that Prince Harry, son of the late Princess Diana and third in line to the British throne, had secretly been deployed to Afghanistan. Subsequent reports revealed that the prince had killed up to thirty Taliban insurgents in directing at least three air strikes, and that he had helped Gurkha troops repel a ground attack of Taliban insurgents using a machine gun. On February 29, Prince Harry was withdrawn from the country with distinction via a covert SAS deployment. This is the amazing story of the first British royal to serve his country in 25 years and his 10 heroic weeks of combat.

"Will Harry survive?" This is the story of a broken warrior – a warrior victorious in battle but broken and defeated in peace! It tells how a man wins a great victory in combat, and then loses life as he knows it as a result. For Harry, being a fighter pilot and flying the F-15C fighter plane on Combat Air Patrol over the Iraq-Iran border was the epitome of success. After his wing man is shot down, he finds he must test his abilities and training when faced with overwhelming odds yet decides to engage his enemies in air-to-air combat against overwhelming odds. Harry must decide how to deal with figures out how to deal with incoming eight state-of-the-art Su-27 Iranian fighters. Many reviewers have described this story as the best description of air-to-air combat they have read. Many readers have commented this book places them in the cockpit of a United States fighter jet in air combat; this is essentially the story of the air battle to end all all battles and the human consequences of that battle. In the aftermath, Harry discovers he must dig deep to learn how to fight and survive in the battlegrounds of life. . . Will he? In this story, Harry faces the most difficult demons of his life. It is a multiple front personal war with demons from a deep past haunting him and some nice newly minted demons resulting from the glory of survival. The questions are "Will Harry survive?" and/or, more importantly, "Will Harry prevail?" The author hopes, if you decide to purchase and read this story, you will appreciate the broken warrior. Not just Harry, but the thousands and thousands of veterans who have served our country faithfully and are dealing with their own issues. Though their travail, they all remain proud of the service they provided their country. They are the true warriors. We continue to pray they will not merely survive but will prevail. We owe them that much and more!

This touching, brutally honest diary of a First World War soldier makes a fascinating contribution to our understanding of what life was like for the British Tommy. It combines frank, unadorned prose with the author's own evocative paintings to form a unique historical document, admirable for its unromantic, matter-of-fact outlook in coping dutifully with horrific conditions. Harry was a member of a bombing platoon - known amongst soldiers as the ''suicide club'', because of the extreme danger involved. His job was to attack enemy trenches at close range with grenades and other, often improvised explosives. Despite serving in such a hazardous role, he survived two years in the trenches, fighting in a number of major battles (at Arras, Albert and Ypres) before being wounded in 1917. Ninety years since he compiled his memoirs, we can relive his war - despite the fact that he never intended his words and pictures to be published. Upon returning to civilian life, he recorded his wartime experiences in a humble black notebook, but never revealed its existence to anyone. Now, finally, we can share those experiences through Harry's engaging words and simple paintings - a truly personal piece of history that makes for richly rewarding reading.

Harry Southall Owen was born in Bilston in the heart of Staffordshire in 1908. He was born into a poor working class family living in the slums of the Black Country, he was one of eight children. When he was a youngster his mother would despair at his behaviour and the local police were always on hand to round him up when needed and eventually to take him to court then on to an Industrial school for juvenile vagrancy. Little did anyone know that this was in some ways the making of Harry who in his own words talks us through his struggling childhood and adolescent years before enlisting, when he signs up to fight for his country in the Second World War. His words bring to life the atmosphere of the nation during the war and the great depression that Britain suffered in the first part of the 20th century.

Clive Aslet's War Memorial: The Story of One Village's Sacrifice from 1914 to 2003, is a powerful story of those who died in war. Who were the men and women whose names are commemorated on war memorials around the country? Where did they live - and how and why did they die? Such questions usually go unanswered, but this book for the first time unravels the story of one war memorial, in the Dartmoor village of Lydford. Through original documents, Clive Aslet traces in vivid detail the lives of the twenty-two men, and one woman, who made the supreme sacrifice fighting for Britain in the two World Wars, the Falklands and Iraq. The result is an intimate portrait of one corner of the countryside in the twentieth century, and an extraordinary tale of the endurance and bravery of otherwise ordinary people - farmers, masons, railway-workers, landowners, schoolchildren - who, but for the war memorial, would be forgotten. The perfect book for those who loved The Real Dad's Army by Colonel Rodney Foster, War Memorial is about the people who laid down their lives for us, and who will always be remembered. Praise for War Memorial: 'With this book Aslet makes an important contribution to social history... the stories are not tidy portraits of heroism but achingly real portraits of wartime loss experienced by a changing rural community' Daily Express 'Leaves one with a profound sense of the vagaries and cruelties of fate, particularly during times of war' Country Life '[A] fascinating history . . . Aslet tells their stories with great elegance, and though the period has been gone over in exhaustive detail, he still manages fresh insights that bring it to vivid life' Daily Telegraph Clive Aslet is an award-winning journalist and former Editor of Country Life who has spent his career observing Britain and its ways. An authority on British life, he has written several books on the subject - including The Last Country Houses, Landmarks of Britain, and Villages of Britain.
