The Soviet Invasion of 1956
Edited by Bill Lomax

The eyewitness reports collected in this volume were produced shortly after the Hungarian uprising by communists who were there at the time and whose feelings and convictions were deeply shaken by their experiences. Each description sheds an individual light upon the dramatic days between the first and second Russian interventions in such a way as to show how and why the events of 1956 made such a lasting impression not only upon Hungarians but upon everyone affected by the politics of East-West conflict.
