Description

The extraordinary account of one of the most daring World War II missions, as told in the movie Anthropoid

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 Nazis’ 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 Nazis’ 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.
