He was the only one of the assassins to escape.

In later life he became a history professor.

This interpretation treats Balkan matters largely through their influence on policies elsewhere.
Any form of physical activity or exercise helps reduce the stress levels in the body. Certain skin conditions are known to flare up or crop because of excessive stress levels.

He died of tuberculosis in prison in 1916.

In other words, there was plenty of time for calculation, caution and decision.
100 years ago a Serbian terrorist, Gavrillo Princip, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the Austrian heir to the throne. The rest, as they say is history. Why did the First World War break out in 1914? Why did it so quickly engulf the whole of Europe and, ultimately, the world?

Also 19-years old, he was a student who had never held a job.

It is now a little hard to determine who started it; but the Serbs, tempted by military superiority, invaded in a way that looked more like conquest than humanitarianism.

Princip fired two shots: one killed the archduke, the other his wife.

First they moved against Croatia, either as a preemptive attack or in retaliation for the actions of the dictatorial Croatian leader, Franjo Tudjman, against resident Serbs.

Assassination attempts were not unusual in Bosnia.

Marshall Tito (a Croat), after a successful Communist insurgency against the Germans (with the help even of the British, who were deceived by communist spies and propaganda that non-communist partisans were somehow allies of the Germans -- tactics we also see in contemporary ), got Yugoslavia put back together, broke with Stalin, helped found the "unaligned" movement in the Cold War, and for many years appeared to govern a happy and prosperous compromise between East and West -- a favorite vacation destination for Europeans.
