Made-up fantasy story surrounding the actual event
Verified purchase
While they get the detail correct that the first bomb missed and blew up under the car behind it was not caught and then thrown there by Franz Ferdinand. What utter nonsense. They do get the detail correct that it was on the way to the hospital to visit those wounded in the first attack that the car took a wrong turn and stalled trying to backup and just by happenstance Princip was there. The real made-up nonsense is about capturing and torturing Sarac and the Serbs sending him to stop the plot. They also leave out the Serb Apis who obtained the weapons and made arrangements for the border crossing. It is like whoever made this is repeatedly trying to let the Serbs off from responsibility. They had prior knowledge of the plot but didn't do anything to try to stop it. Also, the three plotters didn't wear fancy clothes and have romantic encounters. Princip was destitute and sickly. The scene where the royals go shopping in Sarajevo on the day before the assassination never happened. All the stuff on the train and being chased by the police never happened.
