HHhH: Ã¢ÂÂHimmlers Hirn heisst HeydrichÃ¢ÂÂ, or Ã¢ÂÂHimmlerÃ¢ÂÂs brain is called HeydrichÃ¢ÂÂ. The most dangerous man in HitlerÃ¢ÂÂs cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich was known as the Ã¢ÂÂButcher of Prague.Ã¢ÂÂ He was feared by all and loathed by most. With his cold Aryan features and implacable cruelty, Heydrich seemed indestructibleÃ¢ÂÂuntil two men, a Slovak and a Czech recruited by the British secret service, killed him in broad daylight on a bustling street in Prague, and thus changed the course of History.
Who were these men, arguably two of the most discreet heroes of the twentieth century? In Laurent BinetÃ¢ÂÂs captivating debut novel, we follow Jozef GabÃÂik and Jan KubiÃ Â¡ from their dramatic escape of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to England; from their recruitment to their harrowing parachute drop into a war zone, from their stealth attack on HeydrichÃ¢ÂÂs car to their own brutal death in the basement of a Prague church.
A seemingly effortlessly blend of historical truth, personal memory, and Laurent BinetÃ¢ÂÂs remarkable imagination, HHhHÃ¢ÂÂan international bestseller and winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier RomanÃ¢ÂÂis a work at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing, a fast-paced novel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the nature of writing and the debt we owe to history.
