Dealer Notes
First edition. In Maclean’s Force 10 to Navarone the ‘heroes of [...] The Guns of Navarone are not allowed to rest long on their laurels. In this enthralling successor to best-selling adventure story and record-breaking film, Keith Mallory, Andrea and Dusty Miller are parachuting into war-torn Yugoslavia almost before the last echoes of the famous guns have died away. Their mission among the dramatic mountains of Bosnia is ostensibly to rescue a division of trapped Partisans. In fact, it is to convince the Germans that a major Allied assault on Yugoslavia is impending and thus draw off troops from the Italian Front. Helped and sometimes hindered by three Commando sergeants and by a blind Yugoslav folk-singer and his sister, the three heroes need all their courage, daring and specialized techniques to accomplish their dual objective – which they do by a means even more unexpected and cataclysmic than that employed in silencing Navarone’s guns’ (dustwrapper blurb).

Like its predecessor, Force 10 from Navarone was also the basis for a successful film, which was directed by Guy Hamilton, starred Robert Shaw, Edward Fox and Harrison Ford, and was released in 1978.
