Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. Add the first question. Radetzky March German. Radetzky is set mostly in the period in which the young chafed under the pointlessness of traditions.
Honor is everything in that hierarchical, monarchical world. Baron von Trotta, a hidebound state bureaucrat, lives his life in the strictest observation of protocol and social etiquette — to the point where he only sees others, including his son, according to their assigned roles in the system.
His son, Carl Joseph, is also part of this world, but not a good fit for it. What stands out about both men is how inauthentic they are, how little imagination or agency they have. They are both conformists, believers in a system whose perpetuation requires stifling ordinary human feeling, and even lying to oneself about reality to keep the myth alive.
One effect of this is that they were unable to anticipate and to accommodate revolutionary changes roiling European societies as the age of mass democracy rose. It was all they knew, and its story was the story by which the understood themselves, and how to live. Because the Empire is everything to them, they tend to convert metaphysics into the terms of the Empire; they make a religion of the Hapsburgs.
All at once he felt he was alive, but without any authority to live. He was nothing anymore! In The Radetzky MarchLieutenant Trotta vainly looks to the army, and to the Emperor, to instruct him in the skirmishes of life. They are everything. But just as God is the source of both good and evil, then if the Empire has truly been made into a religion, it is responsible for all that is wicked as well as what is fine in the world. And correspondingly, this religion produces both devotion and secular rebellion against itself.
What makes Radetzky resonate so deeply is that the story it tells is a universal one, though it happens to be set in a particular time and place. It is a story about the effect of time on all human institutions and ways of seeing the world.
Reading Radetzky with historical awareness, we know that what is to succeed the Empire will be much, much worse. Into the Radetzky March, eventually, stepped Hitler, and then, after the Second World War, for all the former Imperial lands save for Austria, came Soviet communism.
Still, it would have taken an army of geniuses to have figured out how to save the monarchy. Roth has one of his characters say that war would be the end of the monarchy — yet the Austro-Hungarian empire was built on militarism. The problem is that the people who would have been capable of making the kinds of changes that might have saved the system in some form were incapable of thinking outside the system.
Consider how hard this would be for anybody, in any place and time. As Kierkegaard said, life has to be lived forwards, but can only be understood backwards.
Think about how the Republican Party, for example, could not see Trump coming, even though the signs were there. Think about how incapable its leaders were of making the kinds of changes that might have preserved its order and their power — this, because they were creatures of the system including a system of thought that created them.
The memory of Ronald Reagan played the mythic role of the Kaiser. Or think beyond the GOP, to the entire system. We can see that big, big changes need to be made, especially economically. But where is the will to make the changes? And who knows exactly what to do? We should also see, but many do not, that the way we are living in general is unsustainable. Reading Radetzkyyou notice the stark difference between the worldview of Franz von Trotta, the father, and his son Carl Joseph.
Franz has not lost faith in the monarchy and the way of life it fosters. We readers know that the world of the fathers, who believed so strongly in the old order, will condemn their sons to death in the trenches. They did not meet their fate in spite of the old order, but to a great degree because of it.
I wonder if we are seeing something like this emerge today, in our country, and in the West more broadly. Earlier this year, Bill Bishop wrote in The Washington Post that modern life itself is working to rob us of our ability to trust our institutions.
You can hear similarly fretful discussions in dozens of other professions. Trust in American institutions, however, has been in decline for some time. At the Battle of Fleurus he led a party of cavalry through the French lines to discover the fate of Charleroiand at Valeggio sul Mincio inwith a few hussars, he rescued Beaulieu from the enemy. As lieutenant-colonel and colonel he displayed bravery and skill in the battles of Trebbia and Novi At the Battle of Marengoas colonel on the staff of Melashe was hit by five bullets, after endeavouring on the previous evening to bring about modifications in the plan suggested by the "scientific" Anton von Zach.
Inon the march to Ulmhe received news of his promotion to major-general and his assignment to a command in Italy under the Archduke Charles of Austria. He thus took part in the failed campaign of Caldiero. Peace provided a short respite, which he spent in studying and teaching the art of war.
In he was Schwarzenberg 's chief of staff and had considerable influence on the councils of the Allied sovereigns and generals. Langenauthe quartermaster-general of the Grand Army, found him an indispensable assistant, and he had a considerable share in planning the Leipzig campaign. He won praise for his tactical skills in the battles of Brienne and Arcis-sur-Aube. He entered Paris with the allied sovereigns in Marchand returned with them to the Congress of Viennawhere he appears to have acted as an intermediary between Metternich and Tsar Alexander I of Russiawhen the two were not on speaking terms.
During the succeeding years of peace he disappeared from public view. He resumed his functions as chief of staff, but his ardent ideas for reforming the army came to nothing in the face of the general war-weariness and desire to "let well enough alone. The emperor, unwilling to go as far as that, promoted him general of cavalry and shelved him by making him governor of a fortress.
But very soon afterwards, the Restoration settlement of Europe was shaken by fresh upheavals, and Radetzky was brought back into the field of war again. He took part under Frimont in the campaign against the Papal States insurgents, and succeeded that general in the chief command of the Austrian army in Italy in InRadetzky was promoted to full field marshal. He was then seventy, but still displayed the vigor and zeal of his youth in the training and discipline of the army he commanded.
But there too he was in advance of his time, and the government not only disregarded his suggestions and warnings but also refused the military the money that would have enabled the finest army it possessed to take Radetzky March field at a moment's notice.
Thus the events of in Italywhich gave the old field marshal his place in history among the great commanders, found him, in the beginning, Radetzky March, not unprepared but seriously handicapped in the struggle with Radetzky March Albert's army, and the insurgents in Milan and elsewhere.
By falling back to the Quadrilatero and there, rebuffing one opponent after another, he was able to buy time until reinforcements arrived, and thenceforward up to the final triumph at the Battle of Novara on 23 Marchhe and his army carried all before them. He also commanded the Austrian troops who reconquered Venice after the year-long siege of the rebellious city in May Radetzky March August He became a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece in His well-disciplined sense of duty towards officers of higher rank had become more intense in the long years of peace, and, after keeping his army loyal midst the confusion ofhe made no attempt to play the part of Wallenstein or even to assume Wellington 's role of 'family adviser to the nation'.
While as a patriot he dreamed a little of a united Germany, he remained to the end simply the commander of one of the emperor's armies. After his triumph in Italyhe was made Viceroy of Lombardy-Venetia from to - being the only one not of royal Habsburg blood.
Repression in Lombardy-Venetia was severe: the Austrians could act with impunity and little denunciation from the exiled patriots in the rest of Italy,  and masking their action as "repression of banditry," there was little danger of it acquiring international resonance. From Radetzky introduced public caning  as a form of punishment, the death penalty for conspirators and life sentences for failing to denounce revolutionary activities.
