A luxury house on an English country estate where the Allies plotted the infamous assassination of one of Adolf Hitler's top henchmen has gone on the market.<br />
<br />
Rooftops, a Norwegian-style chalet, is located on the Moreton Paddox estate in Warwickshire where 4,000 Czech soldiers were billeted during the Second World War.<br />
<br />
The plot to assasinate Nazi monster SS General Reinhard Heydrich involved two Czech soldiers who parachuted into Prague where they attacked and killed him as he was driven to work. <br />
<br />
His death led to appalling Nazi reprisals on locals, with more than 1,300 men, women and children massacred.<br />
<br />
The Edwardian mansion at Moreton Paddox that was requisitioned for the war effort was later demolished and Rooftops was built on the grounds in 2009.
