I agree. We will attack when his motorcade passes by near the capitol.
Consider it done sir
Summon our brothers of the Black Hand. We attack at noon.
We must do away with the Archduke. If he falls, then the empire falls and Serbia is free!
It will be my pleasure, sir.
It's time brother, take this and get rid of them
My dear Sophie, we will be late for our meeting with the officials if we do not hurry
Quite right Ferdinand; we must go now if we wish to make it on time
Serbian Nationalist Gavrilo Princip and his fellow Black Hand Member conspire. The Black Hand was a Serbian terrorist/nationalist group.
For Serbia!!! For our country's independence
Princip recruits the help of Nedeljko Cabrinovic, a fellow member of the Black Hand.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie get ready to leave and enter into their car of the motorcade. This would be their day alive.
Sophie the car ahead of us in our motorcade just blew up!
And that man on the corner near the sandwich shop has a gun in his hand! And he's headed towards us!
Cabrinovic attempts to kill the Archduke Ferdinand with a grenade, but fails. He will later try to kill himself with cyanide, but will fail. He will die of tuberculosis in prison.
The grenade bounces off Ferdinand's car and explodes on the motorcade car in front of him
The Archduke and his wife realize something is wrong. THey also see Princip coming towards them.
