From the Publisher
‘A real humdinger. The best MacLean.’Daily Mirror‘There is a splendid audacity about Where Eagles Dare, in which a handful of British agents invade an “impenetrable” Gestapo command post … MacLean offers a real dazzler of a thriller, with vivid action, fine set pieces of suspense and a virtuoso display of startling plot twists.’New York Times

Meet the Author

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed. He died in 1987.

This is a spellbinding suspense novel. It is a great read to get non-reading teenage boys interested in reading. However, it is not just for young readers. This is one of Alistair MacLean's best in a group of great books by him.

As stated in other reviews, I'm glad these books are now available on Nook. However, the editing on them is terrible! There are tons of grammatical, typographical, and spelling errors not found in the original books! Sloppy and lazy work: shame on you Barnes and Noble!
