About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Gadney, Reg

From Library Journal:

Those unfamiliar with the Hungarian revolt will find this a useful starting point. The text is clear but skeletal; the inclusion of radio bulletins and eyewitness observations offers a real sense of immediacy. The photographs are numerous and nothing short of remarkable; one is transfixed by the gaunt faces of the freedom fighters, the disabled Soviet tanks, the ubiquitous rubble, and the almost ubiquitous carnage. Cry Hungary! forces the reader to feel the emotional intensity of the uprising, to be swept away in its rapid two-week progression. To understand the fuller dimensions and implications, however, requires a much more comprehensive and analytical account, e.g., Bill Lomax's Hungary 1956 (St. Martins, 1976). Mark R. Yerburgh, Trinity Coll. Lib., Burlington, Vt.
