So, i thoroughly enjoyed this book, in spite of the fact that it took me almost 3+ months to read it.....but that was a 'my life' issue, not a book issue.....and when the day came that i finally said, "Life be damned, I'm finishing this sucker!", it was a great final ride! These guys are more than mere mortals.....I just know that were i in these unbelievable predicaments, I would utterly fail....but that allows me to vigorously cheer them on to accomplish the impossible....to literally change the direction of a major world war....and I'm tickled to do it. Occasionally i got confused as to who was who on what side of what disagreement....but that was likely due to the ridiculously long time between reading opportunities in my world than problems with the book. There is always a wee bit too much unbelievablitiy in these adventures.....but then again....isn't that why we always read them??? Absolutely! iI you like MacLean, you'l thoroughly enjoy this! ( )

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.

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.
