The Radetzky March
Joseph Roth, Michael Hofmann
‘a 20th Century masterpiece’– The Telegraph’
“For sheer, epic sweep, I love reading The Radetzky March… I can’t recommend it highly enough” Jeremy Paxman
Set during the doomed splendour of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, The Radetzky March tells the story of the celebrated Trotta family, tracing their rise and fall over three generations. Theirs is a sweeping history of heroism and duty, desire and compromise, tragedy and heartbreak, a story that lasts until the darkening eve of WWI, when all is set to fall apart. A rich and luminous masterpiece, moving, compassionate, witty and dramatic, The Radetzky March is one of the great reading pleasures of 20th-century literature.
