4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David L. Dunagin on May 31, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent analysis of the murder of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, which led to the outbreak of World War One. This book was written in the 50's, and appears to be an expanded Doctoral thesis, with numerouse references to original court documents, government papers, etc. An easy read, especially for students of WWI. Details the extensive Serb involvement in the plotting and arming of the assasins, and the reasons (territorial expansion). Points out the trial, a very fair one, of the captured Princip and other members of the plot, and what happens to the Serb assistants, including the Head of the Serb Intelligence Agency. Very important in understanding the fighting in Kosovo and Croatia in the 1990's . Highly recommended to students of WWI.

Format: Hardcover
Remak writes a gripping narrative and is a wonderful story-teller. His narrative of the events surrounding the assassination remains the standad by which all others must be judged. From a strictly academic standpoint, the book, however, suffers from a lack of access to Serbian archival material, although this does not weaken the book's central thesis or story. For example, on the conspirator's side, there is no mention of Malobabic -- a significant omission. But then again, almost no one else has picked up on him either. Other that that, it is a good read and I highly recommend it.
