So what is this exactly It has won awards for fiction and the author calls it a novel except when he says If this were a novel The author intrudes is a character he is an author researching and writing about the May 27 1942 assassination attempt by two Czechoslovakian parachutists against Reinhard Heydrich aka The Blond Beast the Acting Reich Protectorate the Hangman of Prague the most dangerous man in the Third Reich The title comes from another descriptor Himmlers Hirn hei t Heydrich Himmler s brain is called Heydrich But first as a shrill voiced child he was nicknamed the Goat At this point in his life it is still possible to mock him without risking death But it is during this delicate period of childhood that one learns resentmentThe author as character is obsessed inter alia with the accuracy of the smallest detail And so it reads as history Yet the historian here does not hide his rooting interest Each character not just Heydrich is checked off good guy bad guy good guy bad guy There is less said about the two would be assassins certainly not because the author likes them less than Heydrich rather because there is just less written or known about them And the author means to be precise If this were a novel he says he could imagine scenes and conversations But sometimes one certain anecdote serves well as a counterpoise to the much copious depravity The two parachutists are about to board the plane that will take them back to their homeland and their murderous appointment when one of them the Slovak Gab k stops and wants a word in private with the Colonel Well that s it the Colonel thinks the young man is having second thoughts and will want to withdraw aborting the mission Gab k begins Colonel I m very embarrassed to ask this Oh no But then this young man on an almost certain suicide mission says I ve left an unpaid bill for ten pounds at our restaurant Could you possibly pay it for me Enough to know isn t it Good guys The men in black spread out like spiders Except that they don t climb the walls only the echo of their footsteps does that ringing out and ricocheting off the high stone surfaces Bad guysSo after all does it matter if this is history or fiction or some hybrid historical fiction The style is uniue but there are close cousins Flaubert s Parrot by Barnes Haussmann or the Distinction by La Farge Maybe even Tennozan by George Feifer And really maybe it s the reading that makes a writing a novel a restaurant menu a fantasy football lineup even this review I m about to end this typing in a hotel bar good service nice wood Two stools down she leans towards the bartender and says Gin Three letters and she still manages an accent No that s not what happened What happened is that I read something brilliant no matter the genre It s a moment in time And in this book we learn how men and women got there and how we ve wandered since We learn above all that Truth matters There are no page numbers in my edition of this book But the chapters are numbered I think you should read all of chapter 147 So to make a long story short they jumped

May 4th 1942 the Heydrich residence After filling their bellies with Venison steaks Heydrich Himmler and Goebbels are sat around the table playing cards Lina Heydrich brings in a tray on which sits a large bottle of brandy three glasses and a box of cigars Don t wait up for me Reinhard dear I am off to the theatre Have fun boys Heydrich switches on the gramophone and Schubert is a feast on the ears the evening is in full swing Both Himmler and Goebbels are blind drunk within the hour and start to wind up Heydrich on his marital problems So Reinhard word is your old lady has been seeing the F hrer behind your back What is it can t get it up laughter That s a damn lie I tell you how dare you smear my name HOW DARE YOU Sometimes I struggle to perform in the bedroom it s the stress of this bloody war but me and my wife couldn t be happier OK calm down we were only having a little fun Fun you call that fun us Nazis were not put on this earth to have fun get out get out the pair of you Lina returns in the early hours and enters the bedroom and hears what sounds like a little girl sobbing she turns on the light my darling what is the matter why are you shaking Lina I had the most horrible nightmare a month from now I am going to die at the hands of assassins Lina moves closer her eyes avert from the tearful Heydrich to the sheets Oh Reinhard you wussy you have only gone and wet the bed Historically accurate of course not I just made it up I couldn t resist the temptation after learning just how evil a man Heydrich actually was That s the great thing about fiction when dealing with the facts in this case WW2 the little things can t be 100% certain unless you were there in person how do you go about filling in the gaps easy you just guess but make it seem believable that s the problem Binet faced in writing this genius book It s based on a true story real names real facts but still reads like a suspense thriller after he adds his own interpretations on the finer details of historyBack to Heydrich on a serious note I forgot what he looked like not that it s a face I want to remember so googled him to think what this man did and what he witnessed with those cold and calculated eyes Hope he eternally burns in hell Now on to the bookA brilliant novel with a great story that also happens to be true by a gifted French writer amusingly anguished over the uestion of how to tell it There s nothing not to like about Laurent Binet s acclaimed debut and HHhH is certainly a thoroughly captivating performance the last 50 or so pageswow Whether you find it something than that will depend on how you feel about the application of a book about the Nazi security chief Reinhard Heydrich who must be one of the most unfunny truly evil and hated figures in recorded history But I like to think of this book for it s hero s than for it s Nazi villains two brave souls who knew there was a great chance of not returning alive from their daring mission to take the bastard Heydrich out It s about his assassination specifically and the undersung Czech resistance heroes who carried it out an angle that licenses a certain jauntiness in the tone Heydrich s icily demonic character dominates the book until the Czech heroes are slowly woken in to the story Heydrich and his pivotal roles in the key atrocities of the era from Kristallnacht to the final solution itself take up a substantial part of the narrative And it s chilling stuff The narrative is enlightened by Binet s playful anxieties about his girlfriend mulling over his dreams or even by his obviously pertinent struggles over whether to invent the dialogue or imagine the inner thoughts of his characters And there are outbursts of opinion which really bother him when trying to tie up lose ends Was Heydrich s Mercedes black or green Where about s did the parachutists land Which side of the train did the head of Czechoslovak secret services sit on during his clandestine trip through Germany EtcIncluded there are nods to films and books that inspired Binet along the way this work wouldn t have been the same without them adding a freshness to a WW2 novel as it s one of the most written about subjects ever A subject that can sometimes be boring not this The book builds up to it s climactic Operation Anthropoid scenes involving our heroes Gab k and Kubi that the best thriller writers would have been proud of It s a plan that doesn t go according to plan but still ends up getting results There are crucial logistical points to be reckoned with such as the topography of Prague streets or the disconcerting jamming tendency of the British built Sten gun which got stuck at the vital moment Binet manages it all with stunning lucidity and by the time I reached the devastating finale the deepest of feelings had set in I felt like lighting a candle for the incredibly brave men that risked all to take down such a huge figure in the Third ReichAs for the Butcher of Prague or the Blonde Beast as he liked to be known I hope he died in a lot of pain He thoroughly deserved it

One night while he was researching this book Laurent Binet dreamt he was writing the key chapter In the dream he begins with a description of a black Mercedes sliding through the streets of Prague like a racer snake slipping behind a building here emerging from a tunnel there but moving all the while towards the sharp bend between Vy ehradska street and Troji ka street where two armed men await its arrivalThat same black Mercedes has a star role in the final version of the book too It shows up on one page disappears on another re emerges further on but note this it changes colour along the way from black to dark green Binet is very concerned with getting the facts right the colour of the car that Himmler s second in command Reinhard Heydrich was travelling in on the 27th of May 1942 matters It must not be described as black if there s any chance that it was really green The story of the blackgreen Mercedes summarises the dilemma that makes reading this book so interesting On the one hand Binet enjoys making the car slither through the streets of Prague like a viper He d like to add lots of details to his scenario what Heydrich had for breakfast that morning what he was thinking about as he left his home what he said to his chauffeur as the car wound its way through the streets of the old city On the other hand Binet wants to deal only in facts the colour of the car and the exact time it reached the corner of Vy ehradska and Troji ka He wants to leave his imaginings where they belong in the realm of fiction After all he points out who could make up the Nazis Who could make up the final solution Nevertheless Binet reluctantly recognises that fictionalised history succeeds better with readers than fact based history writing He offers us entertaining commentary on the many novels about WWII he has read and the ones that focus on the Prague assasination attempt in particular He s both fascinated and horrified by the way authors have dramatized this episode in history His fascination encourages him to insert fictionalised passages into his own account passages that draw the reader right in so that we immediately forget everything he s already said about preferring to stick to the facts Then when we re comfortably wallowing in the warm water of his imaginings he pulls the plug leaving us shivering and confused No it couldn t have been like that he says because since I wrote that I discovered this and this and anyway no one can truly say how it was any attempt to guess just becomes artificialSo why doesn t he delete such passages you might ask If he feels it sounds artificial or if he s found new information surely he should rewrite the scene But that s exactly where this book differs from most other books Binet s account is a process as much as a finished product and every part of the process is included He skillfully drives his narrative towards a satisfactory conclusion but he insists on taking us on a huge detour along the way a detour that includes the history of everything related to his journey and the many cul de sacs he encountered along the way And the marvellous thing is that all the detours all the accumulated journey notes only serve to frame perfectly the horrific background to the attempt on the life of Reinhard Heydrich Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia and originator of the final solution by two intrepid Czech Resistence fighters Jan Kubi and Jozef Gab k I wouldn t want Binet to delete a single word
