The story of the assassination of Heydrich is well-known.

1.0 out of 5 stars Made my dog pee more, 6 Dec 2013
Bought this because my elderly dog was becoming incontinent. These just made him worse by acting as a diuretic. Whilst he was taking them he started getting me up two or three times in the night because he needed to go out for a pee and was dripping by the time I got downstairs because he couldn't hold it in. Now we have taken him off the capsules he can at least go six hours before starting to leak!
