Written by an academic, the book nonetheless reads like the best thrillers. Heydrich, a cashiered naval officer, found his true calling as Heinrich Himmler's right-hand man. Recruited by Himmler to create a security service within the SS, Heydrich was instrumental in morphing the SS from a mere "praetorian guard" for Hitler to a police organization with tentacles reaching every corner of Germany and the nations it overran.

The story is one of gripping suspense throughout that climbs to a crescendo to the 4th of June 1942 with the killing of the 'butcher of Prague'. I have long been interested in political assassinations and find Heydrich's demise to be a rather accurate template for Kennedy's killing in Dallas just over twenty years later.

By Callum MacDonald

Heydrich's assassination was unique, the only murder of a prominent Nazi carried out by agents trained in Britain.

It continues with fine chapters on the development of the Czech plans to assassinate Heydrich, the assassination, and the German reprisals. Ever since the May 1942 killing of Heydrich and the predictable gory aftermath of reprisals - including the systematic and total destruction of the Czech village of Lidice - the wisdom a plot to kill such a high ranking Nazi and bring on excessive retaliation, has been doubted.

Published on the 50th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, this piece of historical analysis describes the events surrounding the assassination in 1942 by a Czech team of partisans of Hitler's henchman, Reinhard Heydrich. The partisans were betrayed to the Gestapo, surrounded where they were hiding in a church in Prague and commited suicide with their last bullets. In retaliation, the Gestapo obliterated the Czech village of Lidice and massacred its inhabitants. The author has also written "The United States, Britain and Appeasement" and "Korea: The War before Vietnam".
