I read this a classic World War II action adventure as a teenager and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have now reread this book and loved just as much. In November of 1943, an elite team of Nazi paratroopers descends on British soil with a diabolical goal: to abduct Winston Churchill and cripple the Allied war effort. The mission, ordered by Hitler himself and planned by Heinrich Himmler, is led by ace agent Kurt Steiner and aided on the ground by IRA gunman Liam Devlin. Escapism at its best. I plan to read the next in this series!
