The story has all the elements; tough gritty men on a mission, spies, betrayal, sea action. The characters feel like real WW2 men; a couple are totally ruthless, another is a little cowardly and another complains that the mission is doomed to fail. Many will be familiar with the story, but it's so well told it's worth reading even if you have seen the film. I had a real sense of tension throughout and was willing certain things to happen.
As with most older books given the Amazon treatment, or so I have experienced, there are problems. Usually the proof reading ranges from careless to disruptive. In this case, there are only a few proofreading errors but there are pages missing between Loc 1153 and Loc 1161.
My impression is that non-Amazon supplied books are less susceptible to such errors but if you want the Kindle system you are stuck.
There is an English modesty in the story. The lead characters are repesented by every shade of Ally whilst the only true English character agonises over his weakness and shortcomings.
Excellent value as the three sequels are in the package (although it has to be said that the standard steadily falls). Just go with it at full tilt and enjoy it for what it is.
Tough men, no nonsense determination to achieve a virtually impossible mission.
What the British army is all about.
Great read for a cold winter night with the cat on your lap, pine logs crackling and roaring on the open fire and a fine bottle of whiskey on the side table.
The leader of the mission to put the guns of Navarone out of commission is a world-famous New Zealand climber.
The team meets with many dangerous scrapes with the enemy and there is a formidable cliff to climb after reaching the Greek island.Stevens,a young Lieutenant,is injured during the climb but bravely continues up the cliff.
There is a meeting with a German patrol lead by an honourable officer.
There is plenty of detail on explosives and the narrative carries the reader along at a fair pace.
This would interest people with like stories of special missions behind the lines.
