Anđeo atentata

Svetislav Basara

Publisher: Laguna


After his death, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria dictates from his grave his views on the Sarajevo assassination and its causes and consequences to his personal secretary Ferdinand Berchtold. With unbridled humour and much irony, Basara exposes the well-worn stereotypical interpretations of the historical events surrounding the assassination in dialogues between our two protagonists. Franz Ferdinand offers his own artistically convincing truth about the decisive events that led to the First World War. Basara pokes fun at Balkan infighting and German decadence and arrogance, exposing bit by bit the merciless defeats of both large and small nations in the 20th century.
