By Henrik Rehr

Gripping, relevant and edgy historical fiction in graphic novel form.

This is a fictional account of the life of the young Serbian terrorist, Gavrilo Princep, who touched off World War I in 1914 by assassinating the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Rehr has used all the known details of Princep's life as source material and made educated guesses at the rest. The result is gripping portrait of radicalization as resonant with today's world as with the past.
