    Thing is with the fragments passing through clothes dragging fibres into the wound and stuff going into his intestines would cause bacteria to run rampant through his system plus they only really started using penicillin in 1942 who knows gas gangerene etc.

    From WIKI: "A Czechicon woman went to Heydrich's aid and flagged down a delivery van. He was placed on his stomach in the back of the van and taken to the emergency room at Bulovka Hospital. He had suffered severe injuries to his left side, with major damage to his diaphragm, spleen, and one lung. A splenectomy was performed, and the chest wound, left lung, and diaphragm were all debrided. Himmler ordered Karl Gebhardt to fly to Prague to assume care. Despite a fever, Heydrich's recovery appeared to progress well. Hitler's personal doctor Theodor Morell suggested the use of the new antibacterial drug sulfonamide, but Gebhardt thought that Heydrich would recover and declined the suggestion. Heydrich reconciled himself to his fate on 2 June, during a visit by Himmler, by reciting one of his father's operas: The world is just a barrel-organ which the Lord God turns Himself. We all have to dance to the tune which is already on the drum.

    Heydrich slipped into a coma after Himmler's visit and never regained consciousness. He died on 4 June; an autopsy concluded that he died of sepsis.

One of the 2 Czechicon agents that did the attack was also injured by the exploding grenade and had it been a bio agent, he would have been likely died or showed symptoms before the Germans eventually got to them. Given the crude mods to the anti-tank grenade, and the time and method taken to deploy them and it all the way to Prague, I think its a very fanciful theory.
    It's a book I read in university, so can't remember much more about it, but one might think an ex-chemical weapons scientist would be able to bring some expertise to the matter.

    Biological and chemical weapons are a Pandora's Box that was not opened, as far as we know, in WWII, and the reasons are obvious: fear of ever-escalating reprisal, and of course the fact that so many of the WWII leaders had personal experience of chemical warfare in WWI.

    So if there was such a component to the assassination of Heydrich, it would have been a very well kept secret indeed and only those likely to buy shares in the Brooklyn bridge would expect to find documentary evidence in the P.R.O.

    You may well be right, I just mention those points as context.

    Truth is often stranger than fiction:

    Heinz Heydrich - Wikipedia
