Críticas:

'With scholarship and verve ... [it] has the quality of a crisp, well-written thriller, lingering vividly in the mind.' (Ian Thomson Daily Telegraph)

'Opens up a fascinating new vista on the Second World War at the same time as telling for the first time extraordinary tales of human courage and solidarity in the face of wickedness and fear.' (Peter Standford Tablet Books of the Year)

'A story filled with great heroism and even greater villainy; of James Bond-style super-spies and wretched slave labourers; and of brave resistance and brutal retribution.' (Eastern Daily Press)

Reseña del editor:

In a mountain resort in the Alps, Hitler built his 'Eagle's Nest' from which he conceived and directed the war. Skiing resorts were turned into training centres for mountain warfare, plans were made to invade Switzerland, and concentration camps were seeded. But the Alps were also cradles of resistance -- home to US and British spies and double agents, along with French, Italian and Yugoslavian allies. There were tales of courage, heroism, self-sacrifice and armed struggle. Storming the Eagle's Nest brings together these stories of the definitive account of this crucial arena of the Second World War, in which Europe's exclusive playground became a battlefield.
