A History of Hungary, 1929-1945
A History of Hungary, 1929-1945
By C. A. Macartney
Praeger, 1957, 2 pp.

Professor Macartney, the leading Western authority on Hungary, has in these two volumes written an exceedingly detailed political and diplomatic history, from the depression to the end of the Second World War, with much the greatest emphasis being placed on the unhappy war years. While the reader may not share some of the author's political sympathies, an important virtue of the book is that it organizes and presents all the evidence, including much that is unfavorable to Professor Macartney's own preferences. A major work.
