Reviews

‘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
