The Assassination Of Archduke Francis Ferdinand : Trigger For War - 1,275 words
Bosnia and Herzegovina were provinces just south of Austria, which had, until 1878, been governed by the Turks. The Treaty of Berlin, in 1878, settled the disposition of lands lost by the Turks following their disastrous war with Russia.
