The dat4e- November 1943. The place-Studley Constable, a remote Norfolk village. A group of Polish commandos, led by an English officer, arrives on exercises..but simultaneously a message is radioed to Hummler's headquarters in Berlin: "The eagle Has landed".
For these men are not Polish commandos but German paratroopers under orders from Hitler to bring off one of the most audaciouis coups of the war-to kidnap Churchill and bring him back to Germany! This exciting, well-plotted and entirely credible story by JACK HIGGINS recounts how the attempt almost succeeded and how, but for a chance accident, Kurt Steiner ahd his men, aided by German agent Joanna Grey and ex-IRA member Liam Devlin, almost achieved the impossible. This recorded version is read by Edward Fox, an actor of international fame.

Threatened on all sides, a desperate Adolph Hitler lashes out with an impossible order: kidnap Winston Churchill - or kill him. A disgraced war hero receives the suicidal mission - to take his commandos into the heart of England.

In the quiet seaside village of Studley Constable, a beautiful widow and a cultured IRA assassin set the groundwork for the ultimate act of treachery. On November 6, 1943, Berlin gets the coded message: "THE EAGLE HAS LANDED!"

One of the most suspenseful war adventures ever written, The Eagle Has Landed is a heart-stopping story of espionage and commando action, a searing drama of courage and deceit - and of those who paid the price for Hitler's most daring plan.

I'm not a big WW II reader, but this was excellent. I saw the movie as a kid and read the book as an adult. Realized that books are always better> This book really captures the WWII drama and pulls you into it as if you were there.
