I was 12 when my grandfather died and I inherited his Dutch translation of the novelisation of the movie Where Eagles Dare I don t remember if I ever read the book I think I mostly liked the cool cover of it but I ve watched the movies dozens of times If you have too you are probably male and possibly in your 40s or 50s and this book is for you An almost blow by blow account of the action with witty asides and associations This is based on the ratings for this movie on IMDbcom which show that almost twenty times as many males as females have rated it Their average ratings are very similar though 77 for the males and 75 for the females Even the always critical Top 1000 voters have given it an average rating of 73 and than half of those 1000 voters have rated itOne noticeable piece of trivia related to this movie which I read on IMDBcom but which probably happened after this book had gone into print concerns the German Junkers plane that was used in the movie The JU 52 aircraft HB HOT used in the film crashed in the Swiss Alps and was written off on 4 August 2018 Tragically all 20 persons on board were killed in the accident

I m old enough to remember my mother taking me to see Where Eagles Dare at the cinema in London when it first came out in 1969 We both came out looked at each other and simultaneously said Phew It remains one of my favourite films and I never tire of watching it even though I know the script backwards I was therefore delighted to see a book about it especially by the much respected author Geoff Dyer The Missing of the Somme etc This book however was a massive disappointment It told me nothing about Where Eagles Dare that I didn t already know and is little than a run through of the plot with supposedly jokey asides It reminded me of a blokey chat with your mates about the film down the pub It is not without some good ualities and I found myself chuckling at times I read it through in one go which says something I guess but I was hoping for that a plot synopsis I remember that my mother s favourite moment in the film was when Richard Burton during the interrogation scene in the castle looks at the bemused Clint Eastwood and makes a gesture with his eyes which says pick up the gun It s a crucial moment in the film in indicating Major Smith s true loyalties Geoff Dyer mentions it in passing but makes nothing of it I think that the couple of pages on Where Eagles Dare in the book 101 War Movies You Should See Before You Die is insightful than anything here A missed opportunity
