A Relentless WWII Thriller

In November 1943, Heinrich Himmler (Donald Pleasance) received a simple message, "The Eagle Has Landed." It meant that a crack f-rce of German paratroopers were safely in England, poised and ready to kidnap the Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill. The f-rce is under the command of Colonel Kurt Steiner (Michael Caine). All goes smoothly as the German f-rce, disguised in Polish uniforms, is accepted by the villagers. But one of the men is killed while rescuing a little girl, and his German uniform is discovered. The entire village has to be taken hostage and hidden in the town church.

Agents and counteragents work desperately to keep the scheme alive. Steiner himself takes a dangerous gamble. He overpowers an American ranger, commandeers his jeep and uniform and drives to the mansion where Churchill is relaxing.

The action and suspense are nonstop in this World War II thriller which also stars Treat Williams, Larry Hagman, Anthony Quayle and Jean Marsh.
