Description: 120 pages, over 130 photos, 8-1/2 x 11.THE BACKGROUND OF REINHARD HEYDRICH, THE DETAILS OF HIS ASSASSINATION AND THE SUBSEQUENT DESTRUCTION OF THE TOWN OF LIDICE. Reinhard Heydrich was an accomplished Nazi - a SS-General, Police General, Luftwaffe pilot, a linguist, musician and bureaucrat. He was assassinated in Prag (Prague, Praha) in the spring of 1942 only a few months after Hitler appointed him the Acting German Governor of Bohemia and Moravia. The story of the life and death in Prague of SS-Obergruppenführer and Acting Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, Reinhard Heydrich, is truly fascinating. The perfect German administrator, Heydrich rose through the ranks from relative obscurity in the 1920s to the pinnacle of power in the Third Reich by 1936. The story of the commandos that the British S.O.E. trained and parachuted into Czechoslovakia to kill Heydrich is absolutely incredible! The complete and unbiased story of those events is told here for the very first time, superbly illustrated with several maps created especially for this book and over 130 rare photographs, many never before seen. Don't miss the SS-Leithefte containing the final tributes of Adolf Hitler and Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler to their friend and comrade, SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Eugen Tristan Heydrich on 9 June 1942 during the grandest state funeral to take place in Germany during World War II.
