The guns of navarone
THE CLASSIC WORLD WAR II THRILLER FROM THE ACCLAIMED MASTER OF ACTION AND SUSPENSE.
Twelve hundred British soldiers are isolated and waiting to die on the small island of Kheros, off the Turkish coast. All these lives could be saved if only the vigilant, savage and catastrophically accurate guns of Navarone could be silenced.
Navarone itself is a grim iron fortress, manned by a mixed garrison of Germans and Italians. To Captain Keith Mallory, skilled saboteur and trained mountaineer, falls the task of leading the small party to scale the vast, impossible precipice of Navarone to blow up the guns.
“Action sustained at high pitch. From the outset there is a feeling of suspense… an insistently gripping tale’ Scotsman.
‘Its strength comes from the speed of its narrative, its vivid creation of tensions, and its power in handling descriptions of action’ Evening Standard
