The Killing of Reinhard Heydrich: The SS "Butcher of Prague" Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If anyone warranted assassination during World War II, the man to know was Reinhard Heydrich (1904–1942)—chief of the security police, rabid anti-Semite, architect of the Final Solution, ruthless overlord of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, and Hitler's most likely successor. In 1941, at the height of the Nazi's seeming invincibility, the Czech government-in-exile launched a desperate operation to kill Heydrich. From the assassins' training in England to their Thermopylae-like last stand in the flooded crypt of a Prague church, and the Nazi's savage reprisals (including the obliteration of two villages), The Killing of Reinhard Heydrich brilliantly recounts one of World War II's most daring and tragic missions.

Book News Annotation:

In 1941, at the height of the Third Reich's seeming invincibility, the Czech government launched an operation to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, chief of security police and ruthless overlord of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. This volume recounts the operation from the assassins' training in England to their successful attempt and their last stand in a flooded crypt in a Prague church. Includes b&w photos. This is an unabridged republication of a work first published in 1989 under the title The Killing of SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich.
