'The world was no longer the old world. It was about to end'
From the moment Joseph Trotta, loyal servant of king and country, steps in front of a bullet intended for the Kaiser, his family's fortunes are transformed forever. The Radetzky March follows the rise and demise of the Trotta dynasty through three generations, as their faith in the empire disintegrates amid doomed love affairs, gambling, 180 Proof liquor and the shattering arrival of the First World War. Joseph Roth's exhilarating, moving masterpiece contains the whole of human life in all its grandeur and folly.
