The well-researched and well-told story of Jan Kubis and Jozef Gabcik, the Czech heroes who carried out the the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, one of the designers of the Nazi Final Solution. Martin has devoted time and effort in doing justice to the memory of Kubis and Gabcik through numerous visits to Prague, re-tracing the assassins steps and relating first-person interviews with some survivors from the time. A quick and enlightening read, The Mirror Caught the Sun: Operation Anthropoid 1942 tells a lesser-known but inspiring tale of wartime bravery. An excellent companion to the 2016 film Anthropoid.
