Storming the Eagle's Nest
Available in Stock
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.
