    This is my first book on Archduke Ferdinand, and I found it incredibly engaging There are some books you struggle to read through, others you pick up when you have nothing else to do, and still others that remain stuck in the back of your mind so you grab for it whenever you have a free moment This book fit the third category for me It was clearly well researched and gave a really interesting look into not just the assassinatio
