“At precisely one o’clock on the morning of Saturday, November 6, 1943, Heinrich Himmler received a terse signal at his Prinz Albrechtstrasse H.Q.  The Eagle Has Landed.  It meant that a small force of specially trained German paratroopers had been safely dropped in England and were poised to snatch the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, from the Norfolk country house near the sea where he was due to spend the weekend.

Partly by basing the story of his astonishing exploit on documented historical fact and partly by allowing the full range of his imagination and narrative gifts to supply the details, Jack Higgins has written one of the most absorbing and compelling stories of World War II.”
