The Black Hand

October 27, 2014 | | 1 Comment

The Black Hand was a secret cabal of Serbian terrorists that was formed in 1901 with the express purpose of uniting all the territories with South Slavic populations. In 1914, members of the Black Hand assassinated Archduke Ferdinand of Serbia and are largely credited with starting the cascading chain of events that led to the first World War
