Synopsis

The classic World War II thriller from the acclaimed master of action and suspense. Now reissued in a new cover style.Twelve hundred British soldiers isolated on the small island of Kheros off the Turkish coast, waiting to die. Twelve hundred lives in jeopardy, lives that could be saved if only the guns could be silenced. The guns of Navarone, vigilant, savage and catastrophically accurate.

The Guns of Navarone is the story of that mission, the tale of a calculated risk taken in the time of war…

Heroes of amazing strength and resolve, impossible odds, and betrayal where it is least expected are all hallmarks of Alistair MacLean's work. His riveting books, especially those set during World War II or in the naval arena he knew so well, have long enthralled readers, and many of them--The Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra, and Where Eagles Dare among them--became blockbuster Hollywood films.
