About this title
The book contains the wartime memoirs of Antal Ullein-Reviczky, first published in French in 1947 in Switzerland as Guerre allemande, paix russe. Le drame hongrois. This is the first English edition of his book, translated from the French original by Lovice Mária Ullein-Reviczky. As the wartime activities of this dedicated opponent of Hitler generated the fury of the German government including the Führer himself, Prime Minister Kállay found it prudent to send his loyal supporter to neutral Stockholm where he headed the Hungarian Legation from late 1943 through the German occupation of Hungary in March 1944. Married to the daughter of a British consul general in Turkey, Ullein-Reviczky became one of those Hungarian diplomats who turned against the pro-Nazi puppet regime established by the Germans in occupied Hungary and fought against the aggression to the bitter end. He was of course less than enthusiastic about the growing Soviet threat as well. His memoir is an invaluable source about Hungary s fate in World War II. Ullein-Reviczky's work was based partly on the public and private documents he succeeded in saving throughout the war and his long years of exile in Turkey, Switzerland, France and Britain where he died. Written by a well-informed insider and a shrewd observer, this book remained essentially unknown in the English-speaking world. Antal Ullein-Reviczky s memoirs represent an important source of the history of Hungary from German war through Russian peace, giving a unique insight into the Hungarian tragedy.About the Author:
Ullein-Reviczky was the press chief of Hungary before and during the government of Miklós Kállay (1942-1944) and an erudite, multilingual spokesperson of Hungary in the international arena.
