Item description for The Dukays by Lajos Zilahy...
A family pulled apart as tradition meets the changing values and politics of the 20th century. Count Dukay's castles and thousands of acres aren't enough to stem the tides of Nazism, fascism and communism while his sons and daughters are forced to find their way in the strange new world. Historically accurate, filled with universal truths, written with a European flair, The Dukays documents that critical moment in history when power changes hands.

History with sex appeal Feb 26, 2003
I really enjoyed the historical substance of this novel. I found it in a Jr.High Library book sale. I was a little surprised at the sexual content. Not offensive but nothing I remembered from my Jr. High reading. Interesting in its history of Europe during the two world war periods and very educational (If accurate). I'm very interested in reading more in this series.

If you like a good old-fashioned family chonicle qua historical novel (WW1 to WW2), this is for you. The first volume of three of a trilogy (The Angel of Wrath and the Scarlet Century).
