Promotional Information

A strong personal element to this history. The author and his family left Hungary as a result of the uprising Victor Sebestyen draws on fresh evidence from Moscow, Washington and Budapest, as well as interviews with participants 'On the anniversary of 1956, wielding a vast array of totally new archives and totally new eye-witness testimony, Victor Sebestyen has written a magisterial but also totally gripping fresh account of the noble, violent and doomed Hungarian revolution' Simon Sebag Montefiore 'Victor Sebestyen is a marvellous guide to the Hungarian revolution: its causes, its unfolding and its aftermath. His nuanced, intelligent account reads in part like a thriller and he captures well the drama of those fateful days...This is a first-class book that should become the standard work on a revolution whose after-effects are still shaping the Europe in which we live today' Literary Review
