Shelfari edited the description of The Eagle Has Landed Sunday, August 2, 2009.
"The Eagle Has Landed" is probably the greatest World War II story ever written. Operation Eagle was to be the most daring enemy mission of the entire war. Himmler planned to kidnap Churchill on British soil in November 1943. But in that remote corner of Norfolk, an elite unit is also put together to begin the countdown to the invasion. This is a brilliant adventure in which the reader' sympathies are enlisted as much for the German heroes as for the English defenders.
