***************************

Literary critic Harold Blom described Joseph Roth's The Radetzky March as ""One of the most readable, poignant and superb novels in twentieth century German"".

This is the story of the Trottas, a family of Slovenian peasants ennobled when Lieutenant Joseph Trotta saves Emperor Franz Joseph's life at the Battle of Solferino in 1859. Most of the action, however, is set in the early years of the twentieth century and con-cerns the next two generations of Trottas, a bureaucrat and a soldier: the Baron - stiff, guarded, but secretly loving - and his son, the feckless, disaster-prone Carl Joseph.

The Radetzky March is a novel about the ending of things: love affairs, friendships, individual lives, dynasties, an empire, a world.
