Giles Price is a British Air Force Commander and one of the most important Allied officers.

- Defeated Giles in skirmish
A shrewd, meticulous, and decisive tactician, at times witty, Commander Giles Price has a background in the RAF, where he was a top fighter pilot. When the opportunity presented himself, he accepted a desk job (one of the reasons was the amount of shiny chevrons ending up on his lapel) and a command post at the Von Esling Airbase in Iceland, one of the finest strategic Allied air bases in Europe.
War of the Three PowersEdit
|“|| "I can make a dash for those coastal guns if you like"|
- Giles during Ride of the Red Menace
In the Allied Campaign he is one of the most helpful co-commanders the player fights alongside. He helps defend Brighton Beach in England from General Krukov. At this point he proposes to make a dash for the coastal cannons to better prepare against the Red Army. He is not much seen during the campaign against the Imperials but it is implied he was fighting his own battles against the bulk of them. Being a Commander with experience in aerial warfare, he assists in preventing Kirov Airships from departing Havana. In some capacity Giles is very admirative of the Allied Commander and considers writing a novel about their exploits.

- Commander Giles Price
During the course of the Soviet's rise to power, Giles was one of those who defiantly combated the Communist oppression. He appears at the Research Facility in Greece with some heavy reinforcements after the Soviet Commander and Zhana defeat Warren's garrison in an attempt to retake the lab before the Soviets extracted the data.
He was also in charge of the defence of the Von Esling Air Force Base in Iceland, the last Allied stronghold in Europe. He has a good laugh at Soviet betrayal and infighting before his base crumbled around him. He was presumably killed at the Von Esling Air Base by the Soviet Hero and Commander Oleg.

Giles is one of the Shogun's adversaries and appears in many battles, most notably during the Allied assault on the Black Tortoise. At each operation, he is defeated until the Empire besieged Amsterdam where he would meet his doom when the Shogun and Shinzo Nagama destroyed his Airfield Base.

After the war ends with the Allies as the victors, Giles immersed himself more and more in matters of international policy, eventually emerging as an outspoken diplomat ... with his air force squadrons always at the ready to back him up. Giles was promoted as Director of the Office of Occupation in Japan to oversee the Allied occupation of the Empire of the Rising Sun.
He does not aid the famed Allied commander in the Allied perspective of the Imperial Uprising (not that he was needed by his colleague) but Giles does contact the player in the Imperial campaign, regretting that he cannot assist the Empire in pushing back the Soviets from Japanese territory.
|“|| Um, we're missing a few vehicles over here. You wouldn't happen to know anything about that... would you?|
- Giles, after the Commander steals the Pacifier FAVs and Multigunner IFVs from the Allied outpost on Oki Island.
During the second Imperial mission, Before the Hallowed Tomb is when an Allied Outpost is destroyed and a few Pacifer FAVs and Multigunner IFVs had joined the Imperial Commander. Giles contacted him to saying if he had some vehicles at the outpost. He also told him to what happened to those forces he had at the base, but the Commander made an apology and the transmission from Giles goes out.
|“|| Just a smidge more sugar in the tea and would be… Ah, ko-ni-chi-wa, Commander! I am afraid that you have once again violated the conditions of the post-war agreements! Now you and these Russians must be put down for this little Uprising.|
- Giles interfering in the fight between the Empire and the Soviets
When the Empire begins to act independently by attacking Vladivostok, Giles soon begins building up the Allied arsenal to take down both the Empire and the Russians. However he is bested by the Imperial commander who used the new Giga Fortresses against him, and retreated before the Empire could capture him.
Giles can be selected as an ally or an opponent.
"Well well! Look at what the cat dragged in! Let's make this quick shall we? My tea is on the brew."
(Near death) "I don't mean to bother you, Sir, but if we don't get reinforcement soon this could be the end of me."
(Dying/Defeated) "They would have given a medal for this one. If only I had survived."
(Death) "Well its curtain for me, Sir. Its been a privilege and an honor."
|“|| Have you any Idea what my Allied squadrons are Capable of? I think not... Anyway, you won't have to ponder for too long.|
- Giles taunts his opponent
Giles like to send waves of aircraft to deal with his foes, including Apollo Fighters, Vindicator Bombers and Century Bombers. He will, however, not use Cryocopters as often as the other Air units. Considering the superiority of the Allied Airforce, It is advised to build a sizeable anti-air force when battling him.
However, it should be noted that he will still send a decent amount of tanks, usually backed up by Vindicators. Do not rely completely on anti-air to defeat him. Then again, if battling him on a sea map, beware of his frequent use of Aircraft Carriers.
Giles also appears in the Commanders' Challenge, where his cocky attitude is usually seen as his downfall on many occasions against the FutureTech commander.
