The Guns Of Navarone at first looks like a basic mission - in a key channel in the Aegean Sea is commanded by two gigantic German siege batteries on the island of Navarone; these guns prevent the reinforcement of a British island garrison nearby, and if the garrison falls, it will persuade Turkey to join the Axis powers, an outcome Berlin is counting on as the war in Russia has turned /10(K). The movie and the novel are similar in that the mission is to destroy the guns of Navarone; but there are significant differences between the two to keep the reader who is familiar with the movie from thinking the novel is predictable.
