The Premier under Regent Horthy from 1942 to 1944 tells of Hungary's vicissitudes in the Second World War--a small Power faced by a series of impossible choices. Although Kállay was unable to rely on documentary material, his dignified recollections are a valuable source to our understanding of the still largely unfamiliar history of the wartime Nazi sphere of control.
