The Hungarian Uprising of 1956 was a spontaneous rebellion by a nation against the rule of Moscow - against the faceless, indifferent, incompetent functionaries, who in little more than a decade had turned their country into a pit of Marxist misery.
The full story of Hungarian Uprising of 1956 was never told. David Irving’s search for material and documents took him all over the northern hemisphere, he questioned survivors, he obtained clearance of previously un-obtainable records relating to the role of the CIA, Radio Free Europe, and US diplomacy. He interviewed Soviet army commander of the troops sent from Ukraine to invade Hungary. In Budapest, he interviewed eyewitnesses and survivors, he questioned the men kidnapped, exiled, imprisoned and put on trial with Prime Minister, Imre Nagy, who was sentenced to death. It is Irving’s assessment of Imre Nagy that will, perhaps, raise eyebrows, as well as his discovery among official records of evidence that anti-Semitism was one of the motors of the popular discontent. Read how it fueled a rebellious urge to erupt within Hungarian nation.
