100 years ago next year, and while this was the fuse strike, by that time so much tinder had been built up, that hindsight would say that something somewhere would have started “The Guns of August or September or October ...” The leaders of Europe, bith sides, were all convinced that it would be THEIR show of strength that would FORCE the other side to back down. THEY WERE WRONG and it took 2 World Wars to settle it.

“and innocent bystander Ferdinand Behr”

Does this mean he was also assassinated? The photo looks like Gavrilo Princip, whom they say was the assassin.

I recently read 1913: In Search of the World Before the Great War by Charles Emmerson and have just begun The First World War by Hew Strachan. Such a fascinating time period that seems to get very little attention these days.

My Sister and Brother-in-Law are visiting in Serbia right now.

They have actually been in Europe for six months and will have to stay until November because they both had emergency dental surgery in Budapest, Hungary.

I thought my Sister’s description of the countries and people were interesting. She said that Hungary is much more advanced but the people do not offer assistance. On the other hand she said they are very good if you actually ask them for help. They have some sort of Euro pass for elderly people and she said they never even check it in Hungary.

She describes the Serbians as very friendly. They got on a bus and 3 young men stood up and gave them their seats. They do check for your pass tho. She also said the food is great in Serbia tho they have problems until their teeth get fixed permanently.

I often believed that Gavrilo Princip should have been the Man of the 20th Century. Just look at all what started from there and World War I.

***Princip fired his Browning 9mm pistol***

Browning .32 auto pistol. I used to have one just like it.

Arrested moments after the shooting in Sarajevo, he was under the 20-year age limit required by Habsburg law for the death sentence. Instead, he was sentenced to 20 years in jail, to be denied food once a day each month. He died in 1918, shortly before the end of the war. Aged 23, his body had become racked by skeletal tuberculosis that ate away his bones so badly that his right arm had had to be amputated.


interesting sentence, under age for death sentence and one day a month without food.

Brits and journalists. Probably don't know any better.

It was an FN, Browning designed. In .380 (aka 9mm Browning, Short, Kurtz or Korto) not the modern 9x19.
