User reviews LibraryThing member johnthefireman. A good old-fashioned war story; a fast-moving and exciting adventure set in the last days of World war II, with a twist in the tail. LibraryThing member TheoClarke.

Typically entertaining weaving of a few historical facts with an inventive plot to create an exciting thriller in which Martin Bormann negotiates his escape from the collapse of Nazi Berlin in LibraryThing member conformer. Jack Higgins may write paperback thrillers that seem out of place if they're displayed anyplace other than in an airport gift shop, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's deserving of the position.
What makes this shoot-em-up different from other fanciful yarns spun out to be untold tales of World War II is the characters. The story itself is a little formulaic and forgettable, but no worse than anything Dan Brown might come up with. And while Higgins' protagonists are trading card clones of gung-ho soldiers, wilting damsels, and golden-hearted peasants, his villains, strangely, are the ones with the most depth. This is saying something, seeing as the bad guys are Nazis.
For the most part they don't spew Party rhetoric or act like assholes, but instead harbor feasible fears and doubts. Unfortunately, the book may be a little too easy to read. LibraryThing member HenriMoreaux.

Originally published under the the authors true name 'Harry Patterson' the Valhalla Exchange by Jack Higgins is an enjoyable read. The novel is set in late and covers the escape of Martin Bormann from Central Berlin which is under siege on one side by Russia and the other side the United States to potentially freedom outside and a plan to use 'VIP' prisoners of war as hostages. All in all and entertaining, if short, read. LibraryThing member Bridgey.
Written in the same style that made 'The Eagle has Landed' so popular, Higgins weaves historical fact with his own fiction. The story starts with a reporter arriving in a small village. He wants to have a look at the body of a recently deceased man. While at the morgue he notices an ageing US general approaching, and slips into the shadows unnoticed.
The two later meet in bar and the general is confronted by the reporter who wants to know the reason he was there to examine the body. What follows is an intriguing tale of 'what ifs'. As usual with Higgins we meet a vast number of different characters, with good and bad personalities on either side of the war. In particular we are introduced to Ritter, a highly decorated German Panzer commander, who is described as 'Death itself'.
