The Assassin

Gavrilo Princip fired the deadliest shot in history. One bullet that richoted around the world and defined the course of the 20th century.

Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914, triggering the beginning of World War One and the unprecedented carnage that would follow. Sixty thousand Australians would make the ultimate sacrifice on the field of battle. This week marks 100th anniversary of the Archduke's assassination.

Charles Wooley revisits the exact spot where the world changed forever and meets the assassin's family, who claim he's a hero.
