I am not always a history fan - so to sit down and read a non-fiction historical book, often is not my first choice. But I was sent Terrorist: Gavrilo Princip, the Assassin who Ignited World War I by Henrik Rehr and it made me WANT to read history! This is a brilliant novel set in graphic novel format that captures the start of World War I and it's subsequent outcomes. The story is about Gavrilo Princeip, a young Serbian terrorist, who ultimately sets off World War I by assassinating the archduke Franz Ferdinand. It is a fictional account and that caught me as well - I was drawn in immediately by the storyline and action - yet another thing to love about graphic novels. It's just a fabulous and interesting way to learn history. I think your history buffs and graphic novel history readers will enjoy this one!
