5.0 out of 5 stars Unique - disturbing and provoking, 1 Oct. 2006
This has to be the most wonderful example of independent film making of its type. The raw images, simplistic approach and display of genuine uniforms/equipment throughout, make this an absolute must for the military/political enthusiast. I have the greatest respect for any who strive to produce stuff like this between the tentacles of Hollywood's domination. To have done it during the sixties, just twenty years after the war and created footage of the fictional SS English Division strutting past parliament is remarkable - I only wish there was additional off-scene shots showing what must have been dumbfounded passers-by in London's swinging sixties while they filmed this!!

Deep respect for all involved, even the real British Nationalist Socialists who rambled through their ideological madness and reminded me why my grand-fathers were justified in going to war with those who actively supported fascist expansion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 30 Sept. 2006
This review is from: The Eagle Has Landed (Paperback)
Quite simply the best, most enthralling work of its kind. I remember reading this for the first time as a seventeen year old and being totally convinced that the entire plot was based on real events - and even now having re-read it, it's difficult to escape from the authors engaging characters and discomforting plot. Most interestingly of all is how Jack Higgins managed to convince me that Devlin of the IRA and Steiner of the Wermacht were good guys, so much so that I wanted them to succeed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hocus Pocus, 30 Sept. 2006
I bought this book as a relevant and eye-opening part of research I was carrying out for a project of my own. What you find in here, not unlike the root of all evil 'Mein Kampf', is a mish-mash of hocus pocus ideological mumbo-jumbo all mixed up together as testament to the Nazi's absurd attempts to find root and justification in Aryan/Nordic histories. What utter nonsense unless you are extremely interested in Nazism and all it encompasses, which sadly I am. Even sadder still is the likelihood that there are probably still a few out there who will be impressed by this!
