Terrorist: Gavrilo Princip, the Assassin Who Ignited World War ITerrorist: Gavrilo Princip, the Assassin Who Ignited World War I by Henrik Rehr

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A graphic "novel" that tells the story of Gavrilo Princip, whose assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria would lead to World War I. The story is told in beautiful stark black and white drawings that capture the state of Princip's young, zealous mind and eagerness for Yugoslav nationalism. The book, through Princip, wonders whether the aftermath was inevitable and if indeed one man did make a difference. An important historical story well-told.

[I received an e-galley of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.]
