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. Praise for The Eagle Has Landed: "A compulsively readable storyteller". (Sunday Express). "100 per cent proof adventure". (New York Times). Jack Higgins was brought up in Belfast and later moved to Leeds. Leaving school with no qualifications, he became a circus hand, a tram conductor and a teacher before turning to writing.

Good. No dust jacket. Signed by previous owner. 352 p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams. PLEASE READ COMPLETE DETAILS, THANK YOU. this book was copyright and published by Jack Higgins in 1975 by Wm. Collins Sons. it appears to be a first printing and has NO dust jacket. but has a black cover with silver lettering on the spine. This is apparently his 4th book because only three others are mentioned by the same author in 1975. Now...the endpapers are a brown, illus. map area of the full areas covered in the book with white lines for roads. Front e/p is that of the general area of Hobs End and Studley Constable, while the back endpaper is that of the VILLAGE OF STUDLEY CONSTABLE. Jack Higgins did extensive research on this book of the German paratroopers who landed on English Soil to kill or capture Winston Churchill the Prime Minister of England during WWII. The book is a great read, as all of his earlier books. The condition is good but has an 1/8th inch slant, no dust jacket and only the stamp on the front inside fly leaf of a private village library here in St. Augustine. Please inquire anytime on any of Higgins books we have.
