This is the most gripping book i have ever read The Movie of the same title is also worth checking out starring the guy from Peaky Blinders

This is the true story behind Operation Anthropoid, the mission to kill one of the Nazi s most feared leaders, Reinhard Heydrich chief of the Secret Services. On 4 June 1942 one of the most powerful figures of the Nazi regime died in agony from wounds sustained during an assassination attempt in Prague. This is the story of the killing of Reinhard Heydrich, a man of extraordinary intelligence, ruthlessness and ambition who had risen from obscurity to become head of the Nazi security police and Governor of Bohemia-Moravia. Regarded by many as Hitler s most likely successor, he was feared and hated even by other high-ranking Nazi officials.

Heydrich s death caused shockwaves throughout the Nazi leadership, provoking ferocious reprisals against Czechs and Jews. Those who carried out the assassination were hunted down, and, trapped like rats in the cellar of a Prague church, committed suicide rather than face the certainty of torture and execution at the hands of the SS.

Based on original archive material, interviews with surviving members of the Special Operations Executive, who trained the Czech assassins in the UK, and Czech military intelligence, Callum MacDonald s book is a well-researched and gripping account of one of the most audacious assassinations of the Second World War.

Thanks! I think I've watched it (not sure if Netflix or somewhere else) but I'll check again. Watched too many WW2 movies:), let's see if the book is at least as good as the movie.
The German revenge was outrages. The film was boring, can't see how book can be any different. However, hat off to them, The Czechoslovakia was not nazi resistant country.
Ordered for my dad for xmas. Free C+C aswell. Thanks
its an amazing tale
An equally good read on this topic is The Mirror caught the Sun by John Martin. It is a an informative and well researched account of this daring and ultimately tragic mission carried out by two national heroes.
Amazing bravery.

I watched it on Netflix a couple of months ago, it's called Anthropoid. Really enjoyed it!

Thanks a lot, I will have a look. I thought it was 'Killing Heydrich' but perhaps that is a different one.

Pleas show me where I apologised, they were scum. I was saying hydrich was the main idea guy and organiser for the final solution and it's right he was assassinated and having both murder victims and survivors of my Jewish family victims of his evil work, I say again where did I apologise.
Anthropoid is the name of the movie for anyone searching
Who's more ruthless the Mods or the SS
