Overview
-

The actions of the German armored forces during the Second World War is well known. What has not yet been so well told are the actions of the armored forces from Germany's allies. While it is true that their performance was generally quite secondary in comparison to the Reich,the actions of the Hungarian armored forces should be highlighted.

Hungary not only managed to organize its armored forces, but developed its own military industry that was able to supply weapons and equipment to its troops. The Hungarian military was able to produce all kinds of weapons, vehicles and armored vehicles, although they were generally under-gunned and under-armored.

This book rescues Hungary's participation during the Second World War from oblivion through the use of superb photographs, which take the reader from the beginning of the USSR campaign and the conquest of Soviet lands, before ending with the bloody battles to avoid the Soviet and Romanian advance into Hungary (the Siege of Budapest) and the last clashes in Austrian and Slovenian territory before the army's unconditional surrender.

The author highlights the bravery and courage of these men, as well as the terrible fate of the Hungarian armored forces when the Soviet Army invaded Hungary.

REVIEWS
-

"Highly recommended for both its text and pictures. It truly sheds light on a smaller part of the war but certainly not a less significant part."

- IPMS/USA

"Each of the various chapters includes a historical section as well as the real draw of this series, a lot of superb period photos of the men and equipment of the Hungarian armored units."
