Overview

As an increasingly isolated and insane Hitler pursues his hopeless war, betrayal and treachery reach the highest levels of the Third Reich.

German intelligence knows that paratroop officer Steiner survived "Operation Eagle," the bungled assassination attempt on Winston Churchill, and is now a POW somewhere in London. Reichsführer Himmler wants him back — at any cost — and puts his top espionage agents in charge of the perilous rescue mission.

Racing from the nightclubs of Lisbon to Hitler's opulent country retreat to the damp streets of London, Himmler's men get closer to their target — and to the shattering true objective of their mission....

This sequel to The Eagle Has Landed is just as interesting and intense as the first. The Eagle Has Flown grabs your attention from the get go. It is full of suspense and you never want to put it down. Liam Devlin is one of those characters that you just can't forget about. Jack Higgins is awesome.

While it doesn't have the original feeling as the first book, it certainly lives up to it. Jack Higgins was able to take all the good stuff from the first book, and use it in another great story. It's one of the best books I've read, and well worth the time I spent reading over and over.

This was an attempt by Higgins to recreate the scene of The Eagle has landed, and duplicate it's success. However, this is a mere shadow of that book. The Himmler vs. Hitler, and Steiner escaping to save Hitler from being assassinated was not presented very well. Rather, it seemed like author rushed to finish this book. Below par, for his usual standard.
