In the interest of full disclosure, I am the author of this book. I have read a lot of positive reviews about it on this site and hope that many more people will read and enjoy it.

Reqad this book while traveling between Prague - Vienna and Budapest. Gave a good in depth look at the Habsburg dynasty and WWI. Historically gave an accurate refresher and weaves it with a great story. Highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to eastern Europe or interest in the region.
