9780300119855: The Siege of Budapest: One Hundred Days in World War II

This definitive history of one of the fiercest battles of World War II describes the siege of Budapest in unprecedented detail. Both Stalin and Hitler demanded victory at all costs, and the cost was extreme: 80,000 Soviet troops, 38,000 German and Hungarian soldiers, and 38,000 Hungarian civilians perished. The book provides the first full account of this shocking battle.

As a military history [The Siege of Budapest] is unrivaled. . . . Magisterial.” John Lukacs, New York Review of Books

An exceedingly dramatic book, filled with fascinating stories, some of them even humorous, and with heart-rending accounts of suffering, limitless cruelty, and amazing decency.” István Deák, New Republic

"Ungváry has written a dramatic, gripping history of this siege, filling a gap in WWII history." Choice

About the Author:

Krisztián Ungváry is a research fellow at the Institute for the History of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Ladislaus Löb is emeritus professor of German, University of Sussex.

Review:

"This book provides the first acceptable assessment and analysis of the siege of Budapest, a monumental confrontation during the Second World War. Krisztian Ungvary makes use of a wealth of fresh historical evidence locked until recently in the secret archives of Russia and eastern Germany. He draws on the diaries and personal recollection of survivors, both civilian and soldiers . . . most of whom have never got over their experience. The result is excellent scholarship and gripping reading. . . . [It] deserves to be widely read."--Thomas Land, "Times Literary Supplement
