Summary

Sein Großvater hat dem Kaiser in der Schlacht bei Solferino das Leben gerettet. Sein Vater ist ein pflichtbewusster Beamter der k.u.k. Monarchie. Doch Carl Joseph von Trotta, Enkel des "Helden von Solferino" und Offizier wider Willen, ist sensibel und zartbesaitet. Während die alten Gewissheiten zerbröckeln, sucht er Ablenkung von seiner Schwäche im Spiel, im Alkohol, bei den Frauen. Anhand von drei Generationen der Familie von Trotta schildert Joseph Roth Glanz und Verfall des Habsburgerreichs - mit diesem Roman über sein Lebensthema schuf Joseph Roth sein Meisterwerk.

Critic reviews

Schöner als im "Radetzkymarsch" ist wahrscheinlich selten der Untergang einer Epoche beschrieben worden.
