Between the world wars, Hungary was a relatively small country aiming to recover territory lost because of World War One, and its Army was trained, equipped, armed and prepared to fight with its neighbours, to this end. At the outset of World War Two, Hungarian involvement in the war was minimal. Then, suddenly, this small country found itself in a total war with the Allied nations, primarily the Soviet Union. Although in 1941, this war was remote, in 1944–45 it arrived in Hungary, crushing the kingdom. This book gives a brief history of the Hungarian Army (Honvédség), focusing on the main armament of the land forces: armoured vehicles, artillery pieces, infantry weapons and motor vehicles. The Hungarian Army had an interesting mix of weaponry and equipment inherited from the Austro-Hungarian Army, purchased from Germany, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland and produced by the Hungarian war industry, based on licences or its own designs. The 170 illustrations include 18 original colour photos and 18 colour profiles, skilfully painted by Tamás Deák.

Author Péter Mujzer provides a well written and informative text detailing the armored vehicles, artillery, infantry weapons and vehicles used by the Hungarian military during World War Two.

This book is the product of much detailed research conducted by the author and it is supported by numerous period photographs. In its almost 100 pages there is much information, and it is very well presented. This new book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the Eastern Front and of Nazi Germany’s allies. It is well written and in time it will become one of the key
reference works on this topic. The author has done great service to the memory of these troops, and it is commendable that he has produced such a good
