Die Standarte, Roman by Alexander Lernet-Holenia( Book )

126 editions published between 1934 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En octubre de 1918 un joven oficial del ejército imperial, el austriaco Herbert Menis, se reincorpora a filas tras un breve periodo de convalecencia. A su llegada a Belgrado, donde ha sido destinado, se enamora de Resa Lang, una joven dama de la corte de María Antonia de Austria, y decide conquistarla. -- Su romance se desarrollará en un ambiente lleno de contrastes: los fastos de la corte y los regimientos austrohúngaros frente a la crudeza y las privaciones de la guerra; la unidad de los oficiales frente a las disensiones en la tropa. Los protagonistas de la historia parecen estar fuera del tiempo, siguiendo unas tradiciones y un modo de vida que eran característicos del Imperio pero que ellos intuyen que están a punto de desaparecer. Publicada en 1934, El estandarte está considerada como una de las mejores novelas que se han escrito sobre el fin del Imperio Austrohúngaro. Novela de amor y aventuras, crónica de costumbres, este libro retrata como pocos el caos y el vacío generado por la caída y desintegración del Imperio

En pleno invierno de 1915, al sur de los Cárpatos, un destacamento de ciento veinte jinetes del ejército autro-húngaro persigue más allá de sus líneas un enemigo inalcanzable. A través de la enorme llanura desolada, sobre la que se cierne un cielo plomizo y una densa niebla cenicienta, la tropa se adentra en un extraño reino poblado de sombras que vagan por la oscuridad y el silencio, donde "ya no sabe uno con certeza quién es el que aún vive y el que ya está muerto; ni siquiera de sí mismo pude uno estar seguro". Veinte años después el barón Bagge, único superviviente de aquel destacamento, narra cómo en el transcurso de aquella misión vivió la aventura de amor y muerte que cambió radicalmente su vida

"A man climbs into Ferdinand Sponer's cab, gives the name of a hotel, and before he reaches it has been murdered: shot through the throat. And though Sponer has so far committed no crime, he is drawn into the late Jack Mortimer's life, and might not be able to escape its tangles and intrigues before it is too late..."--

"At the start of WWII, Alexander Jessiersky, an Austrian aristocrat, heads a great Viennese shipping company. He detests the Nazis, and when his board of directors asks him to go along with confiscating a neighbor's large parcel of land for their thriving wartime business, Jessiersky refuses. Yet, without his knowledge, the board succeeds in sending the owner of the land, a certain Count Luna, to a Nazi concentration camp on a trumped-up charge. Years later the war is over, but after a series of mysterious events, Jessiersky, deeply paranoid, becomes convinced that Count Luna has survived and seeks vengeance; driven to kill the source of his dread, he decides to hunt down Luna-and his years-long chase after the spectral count finally takes him deep into the catacombs of Rome ... The nightmare logic of Count Luna comes from deep within Jessiersky's festering fears and serves up his brooding, insanity-spiced, delicious disquisitions-on what the Etruscans knew, on cemeteries as originally "sleeping places"--Before coming at last to death itself: "Well, well, well, thought Jessiersky, swallowing hard. So you do die after all. You refuse to believe that someday you will die but then you die. And you don't even notice it. And yet the fact that you don't is the best thing about dying ... ""--

'Love does not need any comforting. It does not even need requiting. All it needs is itself.' Florence, 1502. Marshal Louis de La Tremouille's small army has stopped off en route to Naples, to buy objects d'art for King Louis XII of France. Naturally, Leonardo da Vinci's workshop is on the shopping list; and during their visit to his house, the young nobleman de Bougainville chances upon the not-quite-finished Mona Lisa. He promptly, utterly and hopelessly falls in love with the woman in the painting, and is determined to find her - despite rumours that she has long ago died. A visit to an empty tomb, assault upon an Italian nobleman's mansion, duel and execution later, the secret of la Gioconda's smile is (possibly) revealed. An entertaining story, told with style - about love, life, art, and the Quixotic things that a man will do to realise his dream. From the Trade Paperback edition

Although this story of a romance between an aristocratic Wehrmacht officer and a mysterious woman in Vienna set against the 1939 invasion of Poland was deemed unacceptable fare for Third Reich readership due to its ambiguity, lack of heroic military images, and the sympathetic portrayal of a suffering Poland, the novel's actual purpose and highly subversive quality were hardly suspected by the Ministry of Propaganda."--Jacket
