I did read it two years ago and enjoyed it. I really love Vienna and was always interested in the late days of the Austrian Empire. Good study of the rise and decline of a family. Old Herr von Trotta saved the Kaisers life, is knighted- hence the "von"- and the grandson has to live up to this standard. He is pressed in a military career and is just not this kind of person.

English translation of Joseph Roth's _The Radetzky March_. It sounds 
very interesting; has anyone onlist read it, either in translation or 
in the original, who would care to comment?
