Author and journalist, Tim Butcher, discusses The Trigger - his book about Archduke Franz Ferdinand's assassin, Gavrilo Princip - at Southwark Cathedral in London.

Butcher will be speaking just three days before the Centenary of the murder of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne in Sarajevo, the event that triggered the First World War.

Writing about his research for The Trigger in Centenary News, Butcher said he found 'no evidence to support Vienna’s claim that Princip was an agent of Serbia, the grounds given in July 1914 for Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war on its small, troublesome neighbour.''

His talk takes place at Southwark Cathedral on 25th June 2014 at 6pm.
