BlurbRadetzky March by Joseph Roth chronicles the decline and fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire via the story of the Trotta family. Radetzkymarsch is an early novelistic example of a story that features the recurring fictional narrative participation of a historical figure, the Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. Roth continues his account of the Trotta family to the time of the Anschluss in his The Emperor's Tomb. The novel was published in English translation in 1933, and in a new, more literal, translation in 1995.
