He was known as the "Butcher of Prague." He held many titles in his illustrious career, including Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, chief of the RSHA, and president of Interpol. He was also an SS-Obergruppenfuhrer in the OKW, a rank equivalent to General. As skilled in the cockpit of a plane as he was as an executioner, he flew more than 100 combat missions for the Luftwaffe before being shot down and forced to withdraw from active duty (Hitler saw him as too valuable to lose).

He was mortally wounded on May 27, 1942, by British-trained Czech assassins who ambushed his car, which was on-route from Liben (a suburb of Prague) to a nearby airport where he would fly to France and meet with Hitler about the mounting resistance movement there. A bomb was thrown to the rear of the vehicle, causing serious damage to Heydrich's lungs, spleen, and liver. He made it to a hospital, but slipped into a coma, and died a week later on the 4th of June, at around 4:30am. Hitler ordered a mass execution in the town of Liben in retaliation, killing 1,300 Czech men, women, and children.
