    1 thought on “A Cage of Eagles

    1. "Berg had to content himself with blowing up the odd radio valve here and there although he did succeed in shooting off his big toe during rifle drill." Berg is probably my favourite character of the whole book. I've never read anything of this sort before but this utterly captivated me."“I made the study of explosives my hobby when I was at school and college.” “Is that how you lost your fingers?” Kruger inquired. “Yes, commander. Would you like to hear about some of the various expl [...]

    2. I have read a few prisoner of war stories all true so far and this one does have some true parts too.I was interested in this as fairly light reading and also as it is written about German POW's in England. This interested me as I had once visited a POW camp.As the first part of a triligy we are introduced to the authors style for this book and the most important characters. The story has got a lot of humour in it and is well worth a read even if war is not your cut of tea I would say.

    3. I struggled with this book. Even though it's a short book, it was a slow burn, which really didn't go anywhere. As a camp set up for POWs it felt way too comfortable and the ease at which everything was organised and orchestrated felt shallow. Almost like a summer camp with escapes instead of pranks. Perhaps this story just hasn't aged well with security and restrictions in modern prisons more important than observing the niceties. Not a great story overall.

    4. Good storyThis was a good story but an awkward read. The authors writing style is to write short snippets of story line rather than a flowing story line. After you get past that, the story was good. Good enough for me to read the next one in the series.

    5. Linebackers CA. Cage of eagles is terrific. DR H really enjoyed the interplay of Germanprisoner Heir Kruger. __Major Reynolds and NavyCmdr Ian Fleming _James Bond I presume. I presume A. Forest of Eagles is available on my kindle fire dc reader. Truly david

    6. Love these bookdJust finished the second book. Very exciting.Starting the third book. They are very different but I love them. Highly recommend.

    7. This book is two stories in one. I did not enjoy Doomsday Ultimatum at all but I did enjoy Cage of Eagles. Perhaps I should have chosen separate copies in order to rate and review. I would have given Doomsday Ultimatum a rating of 2 and Cage of Eagles a rating of 4. Cage of Eagles, based on fact, was fascinating and funny.

    8. Based on true events, this novel concerns German Prisoners of War held in Britain at Grizedale Hall.It follows their exploits, attempts at escape and attempts to relay information back to German High Command. It's a light, yet interesting and enthralling read.

    9. Very slow beginning,with too many characters to keep straight.I would love to believe in a congenial prison.While we expect a good author to insert some creative licence this went a bit to Far ____sickle.
