It is 1943. Two huge German guns in the grim, impregnable fortress on a huge beautiful island off the coast of Turkey are having a devastating impact on Allied shipping and preventing the evacuation of hard-pressed British troops from the nearby island of Kheros. The Germans are poised to overrun and unless the guns can be put out of action within a matter of days, a thousand men will die.

All previous attempts to attack the fortress of Navarone have failed. It is time for one last desperate throw of the dice. And so a select Subversive Operations commando unit, led by the famous pre-war mountaineer Captain Keith Mallory, launches a daring and very possibly suicidal raid.

This BBC Radio 2 dramatisation, starring Toby Stephens and Michael Williams, brings to exhilarating life one of the greatest adventure stories of World War II.

    " This book was given to me by my Grade 9 Literature reading. Up to that pint I did not really enjoy reading novels. After i read this I was hooked. MacLean had energized me to read and I went on to read every one of Alistair MacLean's books and have enjoyed reading ever since. Thank you Mr Grimson! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee Ann | 1/20/2014

    " Please, please, PLEASE don't think the movie is representative of the book...they make one of the main characters bad! Superb action set against the backdrop of WWII. I'm so glad they seem to be reprinting these as I love them all. They don't write action/suspense like this anymore. "

    " Action packed thriller.... Ir was a bit difficult to imagine some scenes though... But never the less worth reading... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Deane | 12/20/2013

    " This book was given to me by the Easter Bunny one year when I was in middle school. I read it in one day, and then I read it again over the course of the next few days. I read most of Alistair MacLean's books more than once during middle and high school, and loved most of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicky | 12/7/2013

    " I just enjoy Alistair MacLean. His heroes of are of the old school - men with steel for sinews and superior brains and mental strength. And usually the good guys win. One of my dad's books, being exactly what it's meant to me, a thriller, no more, but none the less for that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 9/29/2012

    " Another great book that would keep you entertained. It is not a nail bitter but if you need a book to travel with or take to the beach, I think you would do well to pick it up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Grant | 9/29/2012

    " A cracker jack adventure story here. Classic suspense and holds up very well. Dialogue still gives me fits but much better than I remembered this one as originally read this back in the early 1970's. "
