Overview
-

You’ll Be Hearing from Us is a detailed investigation into Operation Anthropoid and its consequences. Operation Anthropoid was a Special Operations Executive operation with the aim of assassinating a high ranking German official in what was now known as the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

Politically motivated it was raised at the instigation of the Czech Government-in-Exile. It covers the escape of the men from Czechoslovakia and their time in France before escaping again to the UK. The book also covers their selection, training and return to Czechoslovakia.

The target for the assassination was SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich who was probably seen by many high ranking Nazis as a future leader and architect of the Final Solution. The book covers the preparations for the operation, its actual 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 from that report.

About The Author
-

Niall Cherry was born in London in 1959 and recalls becoming interested in military history as a schoolboy from watching such classic war films as 'The Battle of Britain' and 'A Bridge Too Far'. He later found out that one of his grandfathers fought in the Great War, serving as a chemical corporal at Loos in 1915 and ended up as a Captain. His father served in the REME in the 1950's and Niall continued in the family tradition by serving in the RAMC. During his time he qualified as a Combat Medical Technician Class 1 and an instructor in First Aid and Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare and ended as a Senior NCO. Deeply interested in the major conflicts of the 20th Century he has visited numerous battlefields including the Western Front, Arnhem, Gallipoli, Normandy and North Africa. He is a longstanding member of the Western Front Association, the Military Heraldry Society and 23 Parachute Field Ambulance Old Comrades Association. He also has the honour to be the UK representative for the Society of Friends of the Airborne Museum Oosterbeek and membership secretary and a trustee of the Arnhem 1944 Fellowship. He has now written five books - 'Red Berets and Red Crosses', 'I Shall Not Find His Equal', 'Most Unfavourable Ground: The Battle of Loos 1915', 'With Nothing Bigger than a Bren Gun' and 'Striking Back: Britain's Airborne & Commando Raids 1940-42'. He has led various groups around battlefields, contributed articles to 'After the Battle' and 'Battlefields Review' and has helped with around 30 books on the airborne forces and the Great War. Niall currently lives in Lancashire and works for BAE Systems in the aerospace industry.
