Synopsis

This classic World War II thriller epitomizes intrigue and white-knuckle suspense. Seven men and a woman, part of a team of British special forces, parachute onto a mountainside in wartime Germany. Their mission is to enter the seemingly impenetrable Castle of the Eagle, headquarters of the German Secret Service. Once inside, they must save a captured American general before Nazi interrogators can force him to reveal secret D-Day plans. But this daring rescue is not as straightforward as it seems. As team members begin to die, it becomes clear that someone in the group is determined to sabotage the mission. Is there a double agent among them? Where Eagles Dare is an irresistible spy story with a startling twist.
