In a mountain resort in the Bavarian Alps, Hitler built his 'Eagle's Nest' headquarters: here he conceived and directed the war as the surrounding territory fell to fascism. 'The Alps as much as Berlin were at the heart of the Third Reich', writes Jim Ring and here he reveals the alpine training and battle grounds, the secret rocket factories and slave labour camps, and how, as the war progressed, the occupied Alps became a cradle of resistance to the Nazis. Slightly off-mint.

About the Author:

Jim Ring is an author and film-maker. Four of his titles are being reissued in Faber Finds: Erskine Childers; How the English Made the Alps; We Come Unseen: The Untold Story of Britain's Cold War Submariners; Riviera: The Rise and Rise of the Cote d'Azur., Jim Ring's 1996 debut, Erskine Childers, won the Marsh Prize for biography. It was followed by How the English Made the Alps which was described as 'fascinating' by the Daily Telegraph and 'evocative and entertaining' by the Financial Times. His collective biography of Britain's leading Cold War submariners, We Come Unseen, won the Mountbatten Prize and was called 'a welcome acknowledgement of one of the Cold War's little-known aspects' by the Sunday Telegraph.

Review:

The story is told with scholarship and verve ... Storming the Eagle's Nest has the quality of a crisp, well-written thriller, lingering vividly in the mind. -- Ian Thomson Daily Telegraph
