Classic book that became an epic film from one of the masters. ( )

This is a sequel to "The Guns of Navarone", and includes part of the sabotage team in a new endeavor, on the Yugoslavian battlefront.

I enjoyed this follow-up, although not quite as much as I did the previous book. However, there's still plenty of action and plot twists to engage and entertain. Recommended. ( )

Alistair MacLean, the master of suspenseful novels, parachutes his heroes from the "Guns of Navarone" into the war torn, Nazi occupied mountains of Yugoslavia. Their mission: to blow a dam that is crucial to the Nazi offensive. An excellent action packed read. ( )

Not quite as good as the original GUNS OF NAVARONE, but pretty darned entertaining anyway. It's particularly enjoyable watching the grizzled combat vets Mallory, Miller, and Andrea outwit and outclass the gung-ho young Commandoes.

Maclean's not the only genre hack to write his weakest book as a sequel to his best. ( )

First words
Commander Vincent Ryan, R.N., Captain (Destroyers) and commanding officer of His Majestry's latest S-class destroyer Sirdar, leaned his elbows comfortably on the coaming of his bridge, brought up his night glasses and gazed out thoughtfully over the calm and silver water of the moonlit Aegean.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0006164331, Paperback)

The thrilling sequel to Alistair MacLean's masterpiece of World War II adventure, The Guns of Navarone. Now reissued in a new cover style. The guns of Navarone have been silenced, but the heroic survivors have no time to rest on their laurels. Almost before the last echoes of the famous guns have died away, Keith Mallory, Andrea and Dusty Miller are parachuting into war-torn Yugoslavia to rescue a division of Partisans ...and to fulfil a secret mission, so deadly that it must be hidden from their own allies.
