The assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914, started the First World War. This cost more than ten million lives, and overthrew the four ancient and imperial dynasties -- Hohenzollern, Habsburg, Ottoman and Romanov -- which had ruled most of Europe. The world had not yet outlived the violence and the passions released by this fateful murder, which was itself the climax of many long generations of struggle by the Slavs of southern Europe against Austrian and Turkish tyranny. Here is the complete and exciting story of how and why the desperate deed was done. It is told with important new material from archives opened only by the Second World War. It is a critical and scholarly survey of the enormous historical literature which has been devoted to this subject. Finally, it is told here for the first time in the context of the land and the people of Gavrilo Princip, the Bosnian schoolboy who fired the fatal shots.
