The Killing Of Reinhard Heydrich

Overview

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.

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
The most complete account to date. . . gripping in its narrative drive. -- New York Times
Library Journal
Here's one who didn't get away. Quite the contrary, Heydrich, the perfect Nazi--if there could be such a thing--was assassinated in 1942 by Czech patriots who planted a bomb in his car. MacDonald's 1989 volume, which reads like a good thriller, follows this plot to kill the head of the Nazi security police.
Booknews
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. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
