Summary
This is Sean McMeekin's story of Europe's countdown to war in 1914, told through the eyes of men who, even a century later, still seem larger than life. We meet the Habsburg heir Archduke Ferdinand, the fanatical Serbian assassins plotting his murder, and the Austrians seeking to exploit his death, encouraged by Kaiser Wilhelm II
