Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A continuation of the saga of the von Trotta family from The Radetzky March, it is both a powerful and moving look at a decaying society and its journey through the War and its devastating aftermath, and the story of the erosion of one man's desperate faith in the virtues of a simple life.

Synopsis:

is a nostalgic, haunting elegy for the end of youth and the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

After serving in the Austro-Hungarian army from 1916 to 1918, he worked as a journalist in Vienna and in Berlin.
