The Longest Day The events of D-Day, told on a grand scale from both the Allied and German points of view. Force 10 from Navarone Midway Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Michael Caine Oberst Kurt Steiner Donald Sutherland Liam Devlin Robert Duvall Colonel Radl Jenny Agutter Molly Donald Pleasence Himmler Anthony Quayle It's been a long time since I read my old paperback version, but I think I read it too early in my life.
This time around, it was incredibly impressive. Unfortunately, the good guys were often after each other. Sometimes they had a choice, often they didn't. Why they felt they needed to do what they did They were the best of men, they were the worst of men. There were a couple of ladies who played large pivotal roles. Very realistic which is nice. I found the descriptions of parachute jumping very interesting. I had no idea the German chutes were so poor. I'm a bit confused by the idea that a low jump was better for the reasons given.
Less time in the air is nice for concealment, but I always found it a hell of a lot more scary.europeschool.com.ua/profiles/misasedix/como-ligar-mas.php

Any issues with the chute can't be dealt with. Their faith in being dropped at the proper spot was touching. Unbelievable, but sweet. I really want to watch the movie soon.

The others are great too, but those two jumped out at me. I'm a real fan of Donald Sutherland, too. He would be a perfect Liam Devlin. I don't think I've seen the movie since it came out, though. Highly recommended. View all 3 comments. Dec 31, Sophie Narey Bookreview- aholic rated it liked it. I was lent this book by a very kind volunteer at work as it was my kind of genre.
I hadn't watched the film before reading this book or knew what it was about before reading the blurb.
The writing style of Jack Higgins is one that does keep hold of your attention and he does describe the characters and the events well so that you can picture it happening. However the book for me just didn't leave lasting memories or anything that would make me want to go back and read the book again. It wasn't on I was lent this book by a very kind volunteer at work as it was my kind of genre. It wasn't one that played on my mind when I wasn't reading it. I am sure there are millions of people who love the book and I am sure that there is millions more people who haven't read the book yet but will love it but for me it was a flat book and not one that I would read again, maybe I will try watching the film View 1 comment.
Dec 24, Vikas Kohli rated it it was amazing Shelves: best-reads. I read this book because it was recommended by Reader's Digest as one of the best all time. Needless to say that they weren't wrong. Here are a few elements that I was amazed to see: 1. In fact the research is as important to the plot as is the book. The only issue b I read this book because it was recommended by Reader's Digest as one of the best all time.
Again, I believe that Kurt Steiner did lead that outrageous mission. Worthy to remember that this material wouldn't show up because of what it meant so details are grainy but there. What I enjoyed most was the Brotherhood amongst these warriors. I felt sad every time as the narrative would reach the already foregone conclusion that all of them were to be KIA before the book reached its last pages. In fact all Irish men seem to have it Conclusion: I don't think I will ever read another book from Higgins as I am afraid he will let me down.
I also think that they should remake the movie; the earlier one was made in the 80s but this generation must be given a chance to see Germans in a different light.

I am not saying I have turned, for I hated reading about what all they did Himmler was Satan on Earth as he went about his wretched ways even in this book!!! But there were indeed "a few good men" who were on the wrong side of the barbed wire. View all 5 comments. May 23, A. If it were written today, it would probably have a tighter POV and fewer pages spent on the set-up.
Not squeaky-clean PG , but cleaner than average for the market. Well, everyone except Himmler and Colonel Shafto. The characters are imperfect, but admirable or funny or brave, and though most of them are fighting on the wrong side of the war, I understood their motivations and cared about what happened to them.
And interesting tidbits of WWII history. The reader in me enjoyed the characters and the plot.
