The 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand

Today sees the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Hercegovina.

To mark this occasion, we would like to bring your attention to this excellent article, ‘Sarajevo: Where the Century of Terror Began’  in Standpoint magazine on the event by friend of Croatia, Robin Harris. It can be seen here.

If you are able to access it, we also strongly recommend this BBC radio series by historian Christopher Clark, Month of Madness. It can be heard here
