Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

In the early morning hours of 6th November 1943, SS Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler, receives the coded message he has been waiting for, 'the Eagle has landed.'

It was to become known as the most daring enemy mission of the entire war: Operation Eagle, Himmler's audacious plan to kidnap Winston Churchill on British soil.   

But, despite spectacular secrecy, there was to be no surrender without a fight....

For in that remote corner of Norfolk, an elite unit is gathered together. Ready to do battle for a nation against the most ruthless taskforce ever assembled.

Excellent narration. Gripping story

If like me, you’ve only ever seen the movie, you’ll notice how it deviates from the book. The story is gripping and I think the narration is excellent with a wide range of character voices to draw you in. Well worth waiting for. I pictured Michael Caine as Colonel Steiner as I listened, as he was great in the role and it made the whole listening experience even more vivid. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Gripping

We all know the outcome, we all know want didn't happen, but do we know the truth about we did happen? A gripping believable story.
