WAR heroes scoffed at Prince Harry’s claims he had to reveal he killed 25 people for his “healing journey”.
SAS legend “Big Phil” Campion — who campaigns for soldiers’ mental health — said confiding in a pal or family was totally different to putting a kill count in a book.
In an interview to promote his book Spare, Harry said he wrote about his two tours of Afghanistan as an Apache pilot “for my own healing journey” and “in the hopes it will help others”.
But Phil said: “You have got to question his motive.
“Is he trying to sell books or is this a cry for help?”
Phil added: “Where I struggle with this with Harry is shouting it at the top of his voice and promoting his book with it.
“I can’t see a need for him to shout it out that loud.”
Retired Major General Tim Cross said: “These latest moves are very unedifying.
“I have never met anybody who has known or talked about their number of kills.”
Another general, who asked not be named, said Harry had made “a huge error of judgement”.
He added: “There’s no way you can say things like that without sounding an arse, and of course it makes you a target.”
