The Final Day of Franz Ferdinand

So this may be for your edification since it is on NPR and only something you can listen to, but it is a fascinating five minutes of the final day of Franz Ferdinand.  You probably know he survived an attempt on his life in the morning, but the proceeded on his published journey that day.  But did you know there were seven assassins looking to kill him that day and that Princip should not be one of them as the security team had decided to change the Archduke's path, but had forgotten to translate for the drivers who only spoke Czech or that they were turning around and had stopped right in front of Princip as they tried to go to a different path.  This is a great interview for history geeks!
