A team of British commandos parachute into the high peaks of the Austrian alps in the depths of winter. Their mission: steal into a seemingly impregnable alpine castle—headquarters of the Gestapo—and rescue a captured American General before he reveals the Allies' plans for the invasion of Europe. But almost nothing is as it seems in Alistair MacLean's compulsively readable tale of special forces, black ops and unpredictable alliances. Where Eagles Dare—more timely than ever—is one of the greatest spy thrillers of the past half century.

The title is taken from Act I, Scene III in William Shakespeare's Richard III: "The world is grown so bad, that wrens make prey where eagles dare not perch".
