Book Description

The tragic story behind 'the shot that rang round the world' - the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife in Sarajevo in June 1914

The tragic story behind ‘the shot that rang round the world’ – the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife in Sarajevo in June 1914

From the Back Cover

On 28 June 1914 the heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire, Franz Ferdinand, and his wife, Sophie, were killed by an assassin's bullets on a state visit to Sarajevo - shots 'that rang round the world' and which led, just four weeks later, to the outbreak of the First World War.
The Assassination of the Archduke offers readers a vivid account of their lives - and cruel deaths - set against a backdrop of glittering privilege and an Imperial Court consumed with hatred. Taking readers from Bohemian castles to the horrors of Nazi concentration camps in a compelling human drama, it lays bare the lethal circumstances surrounding the death of this most famous of archdukes, his family, and their momentous collision with destiny in 1914.

'Carefully separates fact from fiction . . . [and] brings the Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie to life' Carolyn Harris, royalhistorian.com

'Marvellous . . . put it on your Christmas list and if nobody buys it for you, then purchase it yourself . . . Simply wonderful' Random Jottings Books of the Year

'A rich biography . . . one that inspires genuine pity for and anger on behalf of its main subjects and their children' Bookbag
