Sunday, 28th June 1914: One Hundred Years On... In Sarajevo, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian province of Bosnia, Archduke Franz Ferdinand & wife Sophia, Duchess of Hohenberg, had arrived from Vienna to cement the ties that bound Slavic Bosnia to the Empire of Austro-Hungary, trying to curb the growing sentiment for a union with Bosnia. In Sarajevo just for the purpose of trying to thwart those plans for unification were six Serbian nationalists who planned to kill the Archduke. On the way to a reception at the city hall, one of them had blown up a car in the entourage, seriously injuring one of the visiting parties. After a ceremony at the city hall with the mayor of Sarajevo, the Archduke & wife left to go to visit the injuries staff members in hospital. On the way, their car made a wrong turn, stopped and backed up. At that moment, in the right place and the right time, a postman's son named Gavrilio Princip, one of the six assassins in Sarajevo that day, stepped from the crowd and at point bla ...

My friend posted this old headline...On NPR this morning, there were numerous interviews with authors regarding Gavrilo Princip, who as I recall, was trained and suported by the "Black Hand," an extremist Greater-Serbian nationalist group (I believe the name was used by some groups during the recent Balkan war, but I could be wrong). It calls to mind a terrific book on the subject, which I highly recommend: Frederic Morton's book THUNDER AT TWILIGHT, which explains the lead-up to assassination, how Princip (an others in the youth groups) was trained, and how the scheming of the Austrian court pulled Germany into its conflict with its Balkan kingdom. The various factions of the court never liked Franz Ferdinand, mainly because of his morganatic marriage with Sophie, whom the court treated like a chambermaid. They really didn't even care that they'd been killed. I recall thinking that they were almost delighted to have this excuse to go after the territories they have been coveting. Also described in t ...
Franz Ferdinand was most famous for dying. I mean really, 100 years later what we see is that no one reading this (history majors, this does not mean you) can point out three facts about the man without looking it up. All anyone remembers - assuming that they even read a book, which is a huge assumption - is that he got killed and his death lead to the world that we live in, at least in terms of war being on a global scale. This comes to mind for me because my mom has been sick and in a home or hospital since Spring. There is someone who, when you add the years up, is the 1st generation that was BORN into a world where a nuclear cloud had gone off in the 2nd World War, which I would argue is mind state that we reached due to WW1.

Highly unlikely. In Russia, Lenin's few thousand Communist revolutionaries confronted the immense Imperial Russian Army, the largest in the world. For Lenin to have any chance to succeed, that great army had first to be pulverized, which is what the Germans did. So, a 20th century without the Great War might well have meant a century without Nazis or Communists. Imagine that.
