Harris is a senior lecturer at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst—the British West Point—where he has taught in the Department of War Studies for more than thirty years. He has published extensively in the field of 20th century military history, having written on the early history of armored warfare, the First World War and the War in Vietnam. Harris' work is widely acclaimed and a 2008 book garnered him the prestigious Templer Prize and Medal, presented by the Duke of Kent. His book Vietnam's High Ground: Armed Struggle for the Central Highlands 1954-1965 (University Press of Kansas, 2016), discusses the advent of large scale use of the helicopter in combat, which established a pattern that would shape the outcome of that war and influence military helicopter operations to the present day.
