Britain’s Prince Harry has admitted to having killed 25 people while serving as an Apache helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, media reported Thursday, citing his long-awaited autobiography to be published soon.

The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex saw action twice against the Taliban, first as a forward air traffic controller calling airstrikes in 2007-2008 and then flying an attack helicopter in 2012-2013.

In The Spare, due out next week, he said he flew six missions as a pilot that “claimed human lives,” according to the Daily Telegraph.

He said he was not proud or ashamed of it, and described the elimination of targets as removing “chess pieces” from the board.

Harry served in the British Army for 10 years, rising to the rank of captain, and has described his time in the army as his formative years. His first tour was held under a strict news blackout for security reasons, to which the British media agreed. He was forced to return home when a foreign publication violated an embargo.

He never publicly discussed how many Taliban fighters he killed. Video cameras mounted on the nose of his Apache helicopter allowed him to evaluate his missions and determine with certainty how many he had killed. “My score is 25. This number does not fill me with satisfaction, but it does not bother me either,” he wrote.

He justified his actions by the memory of the September 11 attacks in the United States and the subsequent meeting with the families of the victims. He added that the perpetrators and those who sympathized with them were “enemies of humanity” and fighting them was an act of revenge for a crime against humanity.

Since then, Harry has expressed concerns about his safety, not only because of his royal status, but also because he spent a lot of time fighting abroad. The Telegraph cited excerpts from the Spanish version of the autobiography she received after it was mistakenly put up for sale in bookstores on Thursday before being retracted.
