Eagle's Blood

 
9780099443407: Eagle's Blood

In autumn 1942 the pride of the Italian Navy is lying at anchor in Genoa harbour. It is the mighty aircraft-carrier Aquila, capable of tipping the whole balance of the Mediterranean war.
As the Allied invasion armada steams across the Atlantic towards north-west Africa, this huge ship must at all costs be prevented from sailing. It is up to Commander Hetherington to ensure she stays put - whether above the sea or beneath it. And he has only three men to depend on... fighting on different sides.
Thus begins a gripping story of adventure, self-sacrifice and bloody battle which is as spell-binding as the real-life episodes on which it is based.

From Library Journal:

The ``eagle''referred to here is the Italian aircraft carrier Aquila, lying at anchor in Genoa harbor in autumn 1942. With Allied invasion forces poised for their attack on North Africa, it is essential to keep the Aquila from putting to sea, where it could tip the balance against the Allies in the Mediterranean. Kenneth Hetherington is the British Navy's leading expert on the Italian navy. Churchill calls on him to spirit an Italian underwater warfare expert out of Italy and to neutralize the Aquila. Scott has written another solid adventure yarn likely to attract male readers. This novel of wartime intrigue, duplicity, and courage is made more interesting by its basis in true historical events.
