A number of minor alterations will now be made and Dead Men Risen will be published on March 17th. Harnden was embedded with the Welsh Guards in Helmand in 2009.
During the tour, the Welsh Guards lost their commanding officer Lt Col Rupert Thorneloe, the first battalion commander to be killed in action since Lt Col H Jones VC during the Falklands war.
The book is understood to contain details of Lt Col Thorneloe’s complaints about lack of helicopters, inadequate attempts to deal with the threat of low metal content IEDs (improvised explosive devices), chronic undermanning and a flawed strategy of seizing territory without enough troops to hold it.
