In July 1916, Fritz Mandelbaum, a junior officer in Austria's Seventh Army on the Russian front near the river Dnjestr, was shot in the abdomen and died shortly thereafter. Twenty four years later the name suffered erasure again. This time it was borne by a refugee boy arriving in New York in 1940. His father changed the family's name. Fritz Mandelbaum became Frederic Morton. The present book deals with the events, ideas, unpredictabilities and inevitabilities surrounding the death of the next Crown Prince, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. It set off the dynamics leading the World War II. Trade Paperback.
