Having read the section in the SOE Warrior book and dug out my old After the Battle issue on The Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich I thought it would make a interesting Osprey title, maybe in the Raid section? What do other people think?

Good idea as you are new not aware this title has been mentioned to Osprey before, hopefully it's on their "To Do" list for the future.

I'd be very interested in a "Raid" title on Operation Anthropoid, but I haven't read the book about SOE agents, might there be too much overlap between the 2 books to make a second book viable?


 Another point: There are only 3 Raid titles coming out in 2015. I get a nasty feeling that this is another series that may be in danger of premature extinction. Please can someone reassure me that we will be seeing many more (and more varied) books in this series next year.

There isn't that much on Operation Anthropoid in the SOE book, just enough to wet the appetite! There is also a small feature on operations Grouse, Freshman, and Gunnerside at the Vemork norsk hydro power station at Telemark. I think this would make another good raid title. I know it's another world war 2 title but it does seem to tick all the boxs for a raid title.

Oh I quite agree, I'd be even more keen to see (and buy) a book on the special forces operations against the German heavy water plant than the assassination of Heydrich. And I feel sure that there is enough public recogntion of the event to make it a popular subject.
