The first major campaign the Royal Hungarian Army fought against the Red Army in Ukraine from July until November of 1941.

The Barbarossa campaign started on 22 June 1941, pitting the forces of the Soviet Union against those of the Third Reich and its allies. Hungary was among the less willing allies who participated on the side of the Germans. The Hungarian involvement during the first phase of the war against the Soviet Union was minimal. On the other hand, the Hungarian committed their most modern, partially motorized units - the Mobile Corps and the elite mountain jagers and border guard troops of the VIII Corps and the selected units of the Royal Hungarian Air Force.

This lavishly illustrated book will show what war meant for ordinary soldiers and civilians from the Hungarian perspective in 1941.

"Although the historical record of a smaller country’s involvement in WWII may be out there in many diverse sources, it often takes someone like Mujzer to make this readily accessible to new readers of this topic."
