A post-modern telling of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the Butcher of Prague, a canonically evil Nazi who "adminstered" Moravia and Bohemia during the Nazi occupation. The story of the assassination itself is interesting and inspiring, but book is noteworthy mostly because of the way it subverts the genre. The narration is centered on the author's experience writing the book and his obsession with the subject. There are many digressions, the most interesting of which center of the ethics and faithfulness of "narrative nonfiction." At times, it's almost Knausgardian. Maybe call it auto-nonfiction. Highly recommended, even for those not necessarily interested in the history. ( )

I have always been fascinated and simultaneously repelled by Heydrich and his ilk. Having read several biographies of the monster, I bought this one.

The antithesis of a straight narrative biography, I discovered it to be quite appealing and interesting, not just in his reflections on Heydrich, but the literature, culture, and historical milieu surrounding the man. The conceit is an unnamed novelist obsessed with researching Heydrich in hopes of writing about his murder as a thriller. He decides instead to provide a running commentary on what he finds rather than invent scenes and dialogue.

"Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich", ("Hhhm is literally translated as "Himmler's brain is called Heydrich".) My background in German would idiomatically translate it differently: "Heydrich was Himmler's brain." The most dangerous man in Hitler's cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich was known as the "Butcher of Prague." Assassinated by some British trained Czech agents, German vengeance was swift and terrible. A town was chosen at random (seemingly, but who knows) and its inhabitants killed and the town completely leveled.

There are trenchant comments and quotes throughout: Daladier, former defense minister of the Popular Front, invokes questions of national defense not to prevent Hitler carving up Czechoslovakia but to backtrack on the forty-hour week—one of the principal gains of the Popular Front. At this level of political stupidity, betrayal becomes almost a work of art....Hitler and Mussolini have already left. Chamberlain yawns ostentatiously, while Daladier tries and fails to hide his agitation behind a façade of embarrassed haughtiness. When the Czechs, crushed, ask if their government is expected to make some kind of declaration in response to this news, it is perhaps shame that removes his ability to speak. (If only it had choked him—him and all the others!) It is therefore left to his colleague to speak, and he does so with such casual arrogance that the Czech foreign minister says afterward, in a laconic remark that all my countrymen should ponder:

As the SD extends its web, Heydrich will discover that he has an unusual gift for bureaucracy, the most important quality for the management of a good spy network. His motto could be: Files! Files! Always more files! In every color. On every subject. Heydrich gets a taste for it very quickly. Information, manipulation, blackmail, and spying become his drugs.

One interesting tidbit I did not know was that Heydrich was a reserve officer in the Luftwaffe. He had hopes of downing an enemy plane, but once, even after becoming head of the SD, he flew his Messerschmidt 109 with a group of German fighters over the eastern front. Sighting a Yak, he assumed it would be an easy kill and swooped down only to discover that while the Yak was slower, it was extremely maneuverable and the Yak pilot led him directly over a Russian anti-aircraft battery. He was shot down and there were many nervous Germans hoping he was either dead or would make his way back to their lines. He knew too much. When he did return two days later, he had earned an Iron Cross, but Hitler forbade him from ever flying any combat missions again.

Heydrich was assassinated (it took him a few days to die, of sepsis, not the actual attempt) just a day before he was to leave for Germany to be reassigned France. Whether the assassination accomplished anything other than his death and the deaths of thousands of people in retribution, is for ethicists to ponder. ( )

I convinced my parents to buy this book for 299 crowns. It helped that they were Czech crowns, and that we were in the center of Prague, in a Wenceslas Square bookstore specifically, and that the backpage starts: "This is Operation Anthropoid, Prague, 1942." I love reading about places when I'm in those places, and I also heard good things about HHhH from before, and I adore history. So you can see, I started this book exploding with a desire to love it.

I didn't know what I was getting myself into. This is a History book, with a capital H: Everything Binet writes is true. Even when he's writing about writing this book, it's true. I believe the protagonist of the story is Binet, the historian who's writing the book -- not that fucktard Heydrich (is he the antagonist?) or the parachutists Gabcik/Kubis -- and even when he writes about the process of writing the book itself, Binet still functions as a character, caught in a heroic struggle to write the perfect history, one that balances literary chops with an allegiance to truth.

I found that meta-ness entertaining at times, many times insightful, and at other times it kind of got on my nerves. When it got on my nerves, it was because the book had started to seem to me like Binet had tried to write an original and fascinating history of the assassination, failed, and then tried to make up for it by placing the story within that gimmicky lens of a historian writing a book.

Otherwise, though, I really liked HHhH. It's thrilling and moving, and the narrator's voice is compellingly casual and suave. I don't know what to feel about its essence though -- whether Binet's just employing a stylistic gimmick or innovating a new and authentic way of looking at fiction/history. ( )

I was worried that there would be a twist at the end. But no, the tone is consistent throughout. I didn't know a gread deal of this history. I don't know if I had ever heard of the Nazi massacre/razing of Lidice, Czeckoslovakia. The history is of terrible events. I decided not to read this before sleeping (no Nazis before bed). But the writer keeps a light hand on the material and his drive to imagine it all without letting imagination overwhelm what can be known of the actual events. ( )

I've had this book sitting on my bookshelf for a little while now, I think I bought at the beginning of the year after it was heavily pushed by Waterstones. I have to admit that my attention was grabbed by the striking cover and also the display in the store that was put together. I enjoy reading about WWII in both fictional and non fictional books so I thought that I would enjoy this one.

As I have read a lot about WWII over the years I knew the broad terms of the story but I couldn't recall if Heydrich survived the attack or not. This was a good thing for me because it meant that the story still maintained an element of surprise for me. I also learned some things about the Nazi occupation of Prague which I didn't previously know. The major Nazi characters were well known to me but there was some really good background on the parachutists and the civilians involved in the operation. Binet has clearly done a lot of research prior to writing the book.

Along the way Binet has a monologue going about how you should go about writing a novel based on true events. I didn't feel as though this added anything to the book but I didn't find it too distracting either. It could have been omitted without damaging the book and it's inclusion struck me as strange.

The story is well written and well covered but at times I felt as though something was missing in the writing. I can't say whether this was down to the translation, the author, or the disjointed chapter lengths but something wasn't right. Despite this I found the book to be an enjoyable if not amazing read.

Precies dit soort terzijdes maakt Binets roman zo aantrekkelijk. Hij is, als kind van deze tijd, voortdurend in discussie met wat er om hem heen gebeurt, hij beschrijft waarom de toedracht van de aanslag hem fascineert, maar meldt ook hoe het hem persoonlijk vergaat, hoe hij vast komt te zitten en worstelt om verder te komen. Hij schrijft op wat zijn meelezers tegen hem zeggen en betrekt de lezer bij de totstandkoming van zijn spannende roman.

Het debuut van Laurent Binet (1972) is niet gewoon bijzonder. Het is subliem. (...) Pas wanneer we in HhhH Heydrich en de situatie in Tsjechië goed in beeld hebben, verschijnen de helden ten tonele. De roman begint trekjes te vertonen van Tarantino's film Inglourious Basterds, zij het dat dit wél echt is gebeurd. Het wordt opeens razend spannend en leest supersnel. (...) Ondanks zijn voornemen niets te willen verzinnen om de mensen die in zijn boek voorkomen zoveel mogelijk recht te doen, heeft Binet een modus gevonden om prachtige literatuur te maken van deze bizarre episode uit de geschiedenis. Het concept van de historische roman heeft bij hem een nieuwe invulling gekregen.

Once again, the writer stains the tree of History with his thoughts, but it is not for us to find the trick that would enable us to put the animal back in its carrying cage.
