Synopsis: When Eagles Dared: The Filmgoers' History of World War II looks at the global conflict as depicted on cinema screens in the all-time great war movies.

Illustrated with rare posters and stills, When Eagles Dared features war films from all over the world.  It includes such movie classics as "The Longest Day", "The Great Escape", "The Bridge on the River Kwai", "Patton", "A Bridge Too Far", "Downfall", ""Tora! Tora! Tora!", "Kelly's Heroes", "The Eagles Has Landed", "Battle of the Bulge" and "Saving Private Ryan". Chapters discuss various theatres of war, from the Russian Front ("Stalingrad" and "Cross of Iron"), the Pacific War ("The Thin Red Line", "Sands of Iwo Jima" and "Letters from Iwo Jima"), to Italy ("Anzio" and "Von Ryan's Express") and the North African desert ("Ice Cold in Alex", "The Battle of El Alamein" and "Tobruk"). Also featured are films depicting the war in the air ("Battle of Britain", "Reach for the Sky" and "The Dam Busters"), the war at sea ("Sink the Bismarck!", "Das Boot" and "The Cruel Sea") and the many heroic "men-on-a-mission" movies, including "Where Eagles Dare", "Inglourious Basterds", "The Dirty Dozen" and "The Guns of Navarone". Featuring over 150 war films, When Eagles Dared is the essential film guide for fans of World War II cinema.
