A thrilling Alpine adventure starring a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a lethargic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. A maverick in every way, Geoff Dyer delved into film criticism in Zona, a study of Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker, but he is even more in his element with this hilarious tribute to a film he has loved since childhood: it's a scene-by-scene analysis—or should that be send-up?—taking us from its snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax.

"This is Geoff Dyer's funniest book yet."—Michael Ondaatje
