You'll Be Hearing from Us is a detailed investigation into Operation Anthropoid and its consequences. Operation Anthropoid was a politically motivated plan devised by the Czech Government-in-Exile to assassinate a high-ranking German official in what was then known as the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. This book tells the story of the assassins, Jozef Gabčik and Jan Kubiš, covering their escape from occupied Czechoslovakia through their time in France before their successful arrival in the UK as part of the evacuated Czech Legion. The book also covers their selection, training and return to Czechoslovakia. The target for the assassination was SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the Final Solution and seen by many senior Nazis as a future leader of the Third Reich. The book covers the preparations for the operation, its execution, the manhunt for the perpetrators and the aftermath of the attack, including the destruction of the villages of Lidice and Ležáky. Also included is a translation of the Gestapo report on the assassination together with a number of photographs which appeared in it.
