Anne | 2 comments Hi All, I'm enjoy a lot of different genre's of books and I especially enjoy Historical Fiction. I'm curious if anyone has ever come across good HF about the start of the first world war - namely the events prior to and leading up to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and the start of the war.

I'm just curious about that time period, but haven't come across any HF novels telling that story.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for your time,
Anne
