The Eagle Has Landed, by international bestselling author Jack Higgins, is the ultimate WWII thriller. In the early morning hours of 6 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 task force ever assembled. First published in 1975, The Eagle Has Landed is a classic tale of the ultimate act of wartime treachery, and one of the bestselling thrillers of all time. Every one of Jack Higgins' subsequent publications has been an international blockbuster bestseller, including The White House Connection and Day of Reckoning.
