English Summary:

The Eagle Has Landed is a 1976 British film directed by John Sturges and starring Michael Caine, Donald Sutherland and Robert Duvall.

Based on the novel The Eagle Has Landed by Jack Higgins, the film is about a fictional German plot to kidnap Winston Churchill near the end of the Second World War.

Admiral Canaris, head of German military intelligence, is ordered by Adolf Hitler to make a feasibility study into capturing the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Although Canaris considers it a meaningless exercise that will soon be forgotten by the Führer, he knows this will not be the case with Heinrich Himmler. He therefore orders one of his staff officers, Oberst Radl, to begin a study to avoid being possibly discredited.

After Radl receives intelligence from an Abwehr sleeper agent in England saying Churchill will stay in a Norfolk village seven miles from the coast after visiting a local airfield, he begins to see potential in the operation he code-names 'Eagle'. First he recruits an agent, an IRA man named Liam Devlin, who lectures at a Berlin university. Second he selects Kurt Steiner, a highly decorated and experienced Fallschirmjäger officer, to lead the mission. However, while the Luftwaffe parachute troops are returning from the Eastern Front, Steiner unsuccessfully attempts to save the life of a Jewish girl who is trying to escape from the SS in occupied Poland. He and his loyal men are all court-martialled and sent to a penal unit on German-occupied Alderney where their mission is to conduct near-suicidal human-torpedo attacks against Allied shipping in the English Channel.

 

Hungarian Summary:

1943. Hitler - hadi sikerein vérszemet kapva - parancsot ad Canaris tengernagynak, hogy raboltassa el legnagyobb ellenségét, Churchillt. Radl ezredes veszi kezébe a vállalkozást. Megtalálja hozzá a megfelelő embereket: Steiner ezredest, az Angliában nevelkedett kiváló és vakmerő katonát és csapatát, valamint Devlint, az angolok ellen harcoló írt. Seregély fedőnevű brit kémük állítása szerint Churchill a következő hónapban egy eldugott kis kelet-angliai faluban tölt egy hétvégét. Tehát minden együtt van az évszázad nagy bravúrjának végrehajtásához.
