Chiefly a journalist's first-hand account of the 1956 Hungarian revolt. Interesting as a direct reporter, and in some cases a corrector of erroneous information, he tends to flail about when generalizing on the meaning of the revolution, his appraisal of the participants and the role of American policy.
