From the acclaimed writer and critic Geoff Dyer, an extremely funny scene-by-scene analysis of 'Where Eagles Dare' - published to coincide with the film's 50th anniversary. The author has loved the film since childhood, and this comic, in-depth analysis is carried out with huge affection, as well as a razor-sharp eye. For fans of the film, this book will be the ultimate tribute.
