    That was how things were back then Anything that grew took its time growing, and anything that perished took a long time to be forgotten But everything that had once existed left its traces, and people lived on memories just as they now live on the abil...

    When my children were very little, one of their favourite games involved sitting on the foam filled back of the family sofa pretending to be on horseback They d perch in a row, one leg on each side and bounce up and down to the rhythm of what they called the horsey music Whenever I hear The Radetzky March by Johann Strauss, that gorgeous memory comes back in a flash My kids were right That nineteenth century military tune is definitely horsey music Listen to it yourself You can hear the high stepping cavalry launching from a trot to a gallop, hooves thundering, nostrils snorting, then wheeling around to gallop back to the starting point before beginning all over again And you can hear foot soldiers too, standing to attention, clipping their heels, marching forward, swords jangling, sabres rattling, marching, marching, marching.But for all that it is full of of the crashing and booming, the clanging and banging, the ringing and jingling of the battle field, it is uplifting music too You smile, though you are anti war, you clap your hands and tap your feet, though you think boys should never be sacrificed to meaningless causes As I read Joseph Roth s book, I reacted as I react to the Strauss music, uplifted by the spirit of it but downcast by the waste of lives in the service of a monstrous military machine And Roth s tone throughout the book seems equally ambivalent He holds the military machine that was ...

    4.5 starsThis classic tale of the end of an era, the decline of the Austro Hungarian Empire and the start of the Great War, is one that deserves a time of reflection after reading the last page It s not a tome by any means, coming in at less than 400 pages, but it is nearly epic in scope when one considers that it seems to take in the entirety of a way of life, a civilization that is doomed Like a fine red wine, I needed to leave this book to sit for a while, and it has indeed grown markedly satisfying The writing is excellent and Joseph Roth bares the souls of his protagonists, namely the district captain Herr von Trotta and his son, Carl Joseph Descendants of the Hero of Solferino, a Slovenian peasant knighted for saving the life of the Kaiser during the Battle of Solferino, the Trottas are now an aristocratic family Upon the insistence of the Hero himself, the son Franz von Trotta obtains a political office as a district commissioner Likewise, district captain Franz von Trotta chooses the career for his own son therefore young Carl Joseph attends military school and is awarded with a lieutenant s commission, despite the fact he distinguished himself as perhaps mediocre at best The district captain s life is steeped in tradition He follows the same routine each day, he is waited on by the devoted servant, Jac...

    The slow disintegration of an empire, told through the lives of three generations of the Trotta family All serve the empire in various ways Narrowly focused lives, regimented, narrow, depending on routine, thrown if anything is out of order Unemotional, lives dedicated to duty and I still something unexpected happens that forces them to change focus, they are very seldom introspective.All events happening are seen through the eyes of this family When the second Trotta visits his son at the border, he realizes the empire is diminishing, Now returning home alone, from a lonesome son and from this borderland, where the collapse of the world could already be seen as one sees a thunderstorm on the edge of the city, whose streets lie still unaware and blissful under a blue sky Hose posted on the border, wait for a battle that never comes It is a life of boredom, gambling, drinking and visits to houses of ill repute They are all just waiting for the end to come, which of course it eventually does with an assassination.This is a wonderful rendering of a sociological novel I didn t expect to enjoy this as much as I did The prose is wonderful, yes sometimes repetitive in thoughts but such is the nature of the men who they belong to These are men who have a very small imagination, though as the novel goes on one see them change in slow ways, displaying feeling...

    I want to single out The Radetzky March as my favorite book of 2011 It is the story of the fall of the Austrian Empire as reflected in the fortunes of the Trotta family through three generations Our story largely centers around young Carl Joseph von Trotta of the third generation and his father, the District Captain of W To get to that story, however, Roth compresses into the first 35 pages or so, a beautifully patterned and nuanced story of Carl Joseph s forebears That is, first the story of Joseph Trotta, the peasant from Sipolje, who, on saving the life of the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I at the Battle of Solferino is raised to the rank of captain and ennobled, and his father Carl Joseph s great grandfather Carl Joseph von Trotta is a sensitive fellow capable of deep love and friendship whose time in the Army is a mistake from the start We watch him endure his upbringing by a widower father who has even less intellectual acumen than himself Carl Joseph is the grandson of the Hero of Solferino He cannot sit a horse, nevertheless he is in cavalry He is allowed to skate through academic challenges he would otherwise fail Opportunities are open to him that his fellow offic...

    Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters Isaiah 17 12Empires rise and fall Dynasties appear and dissipate The Radetzky March is a story about a perishment of both an empire and a family.Everything started this way The round years rolled by, one by one, like peaceful, uniform wheels In keeping with his status, Trotta married his colonel s not quite young well off niece, the daughter of a district captain in western Bohemia he fathered a boy, enjoyed the uniformity of his healthy military life in the small garrison, rode horseback to the parade ground every morning, and played chess every afternoon with the lawyer at the caf , eventually feeling at home in his rank, his station, his standing, and his repute He had an average military gift, of which he provided average samples at maneuvers every year he was a good husband, suspicious of women, no gambler, grouchy, but a just officer, a fierce enemy of all deceit, unmanly conduct, cowardly safety, garrulous praise, and ambitious self seeking He was as simple and impeccable as his military record, and only the anger that sometimes took hold of him would have given a judge of human nature some inkling that Captain Trotta s soul likewise contained the dim nocturnal abysses where storms slumbe...

    DNF subject matter is slow and boring to me It is regarded as a modern classic but this is a book that I would slog through and would take away from other books on my tbr I hope the others participating in the buddy read I was in enjoy it better than I did.

    The world was no longer the old world It was about to end Joseph Roth dazzles with irony and pathos looking at the dying Austro Hungarian Empire through the eyes of three generations of the Trotta family, a once proud dynasty devoted to King and Country that had total faith in military life, which slowly starts to disintegrate as times change heading towards the Great War This had both elements of a sweeping grand epic albeit on a smaller scale that galloped along in tune with it s characters, and a sad intimate account of how living in the shadows of past close family can have an effect of trying to leave an important legacy of ones own.The Radetzky March Johann Strauss , is used as the dedicated piece of music for the war horse of the Empire, and is seen as a symbol of greatness within the regiments The story predominantly looks at the youngest and last member of the Trotta family, Carl Joseph, which he lives paralleled with the glory of his Grandfather, the hero of Solferino, Joseph Trotta, who famously saved the life of the Emperor After his promotion and ennoblement, Baron Joseph von Trotta degrades into rural obscurity, and stubbornly opposes his son, Franz , who has aspirations to a military career, thus following in fathers footsteps Franz is a conservative man and pillar to the nation, who takes to his son Carl Joseph better in terms of a military career The grandson, Carl Joseph, has a character that is very different from his forefathers, ...

    Rating 4 of five The Publisher Says The book description from is unusually cryptic It says The Radetzky March, Joseph Roth s classic saga of the privileged von Trotta family, encompasses the entire social fabric of the Austro Hungarian Empire just before World War I The author s greatest achievement, The Radetzky March is an unparalleled portrait of a civilization in decline, and as such, a universal story for our times.My Review The Trotta family, beneficiaries of the gratitude of the most inept politician and soldier ever to lead an empire, rise to dizzying social heights based on a misunderstanding of an actual brave and generous act The First Baron saves the Emperor s life by knocking the fool off of his horse in the course of losing a battle The Emperor s gift of a title to his Slovenian savior sets in motion a long, slow decline and fall, paralleling the Empire s own fate.The Second Baron, excited by Papa s rep as a war hero and having no other information about the subject than other peoples gossip, wants to be a cavalry officer like his papa Papa, who was actually an infantry lieutenant and who is revolted by the gossipy fate of his deed, refuses either to discuss the matter or to allow his son into the military So the second baron becomes a bureaucrat ruling the lives of people he feels superior to He and the rest o...
