HHhH: "Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich," or "Himmler's brain is called Heydrich." The most lethal man in Hitler's cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich seemed indestructible--until two exiled operatives, a Slovak and a Czech, killed him and changed the course of history.

In Laurent Binet's mesmerizing debut, we follow Jozef Gabcík and Jan Kubiš from their dramatic escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to their fatal attack on Heydrich and their own brutal deaths in the basement of a Prague church. A seamless blend of memory, actuality, and Binet's own remarkable imagination, HHhH is at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing--a fast-paced novel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the debt we owe to history.

Product Information

Laurent Binet's debut novel is astoundingly good. Part historical fiction, part military biography, it is a genre-busting account of the attempted assination of Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich in WWII Prague by Resistance fighters. If you're a fan of Military History, Historical Fiction or espionage thrillers you will love this novel. I went back and re-read this unique book because I enjoyed it so much!
