In this account of the 1956 Hungarian revolution the central figure is, appropriately, Imre Nagy. While this story can hardly fail to be interesting, the book could have been better and one wishes that the author, a Hungarian journalist with much first-hand experience, had resisted the temptation to write so fictionally.
