Born in the United States but separated since they were boys, twin brothers Max and Harry Kelso found themselves fighting on opposite sides when the Second World War broke out, Max as one of the Luftwaffe's most feared pilots, Harry as a Yank ace in the RAF! The war produced many amazing stories. But neither twin could have predicted the diabolical circumstances which would bring them back together again. For much greater events have set in motion an intrigue so devious, so full of danger, that these two brothers will be forced to question everything they value: their lives and ultimately their loyalties. And upon their action hangs the outcome of the war itself!

Jack Higgins was a soldier and then a teacher before becoming a full-time writer. 'The Eagle Has Landed' turned him into an international bestselling author and his novels have since sold over 250 million copies and been translated into sixty languages. Many of them have also been made into successful filmsFrom AudioFile:
An old-fashioned framing device kicks off this rerelease: The author and his wife survive a rough plane ride on a stormy night. While recovering in a small inn, they hear a WWII yarn -- the tale of twin American brothers who fought for opposite sides in the war and the plan concocted by desperate Germans to take advantage of their resemblance. The switching of twins is a classic theme, but the skills of both author Jack Higgins and narrator Patrick Macnee keep the tale fresh and entertaining. Higgins's skill in recreating the war era makes this one worth catching up on. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
