in What are the best history books"This is very intriguing and well written book about an assassination that triggered events leading to World War I. This is a story that is not told in the classrooms today, a story that weaves the events of history in that part of the world that eventually lead to the Bosnian War. Although the author's sympathies towards the Serbs show through, nevertheless, the book does not hold back on telling the overall tragedy of what happened to both sides. It is an interesting read of the author's search to provide an insight that is well hidden from the textbooks of today."
