In late October, 50 years ago, the world witnessed one of the largest leaderless spontaneous revolutions. Triggered by a confluence of fateful events, Hungarian students led hundreds of thousands of their countrymen in an open revolt against the Soviet-sponsored government. Matthews, a journalist at Radio Free Europe, realised he had a ringside seat and saved every scrap of news. Here, at long last, from those journalist reports and memoirs, he recreates a picture of what it was like to live through that exhilirating time.

Book Description :

On October 23, 1956, a popular uprising against Soviet rule swept through Hungary like a force of nature, only to be mercilessly crushed by Soviet tanks twelve days later. Only now, fifty years after those harrowing events, can the full story be told. This book is a powerful eyewitness account and a gripping history of the uprising in Hungary that heralded the future liberation of Eastern Europe. Paul Lendvai was a young journalist covering politics in Hungary when the uprising broke out. He knew the government officials and revolutionaries involved. He was on the front lines of the student protests and the bloody street fights and he saw the revolutionary government smashed by the Red Army. In this riveting, deeply personal, and often irreverent book, Lendvai weaves his own experiences with in-depth reportage to unravel the complex chain of events leading up to and including the uprising, its brutal suppression, and its far-reaching political repercussions in Hungary and neighboring Eastern Bloc countries. He draws upon exclusive interviews with Russian and former KGB officials, survivors of the Soviet backlash, and relatives of those executed. He reveals new evidence from closed tribunals and documents kept secret in Soviet and Hungarian archives. Lendvai's breathtaking narrative shows how the uprising, while tragic, delivered a stunning blow to Communism that helped to ultimately bring about its demise. One Day That Shook the Communist World is the best account of these unprecedented events.

Book Description :

Sixty years ago, the people of Hungary stood up to Soviet tyranny. In Budapest and throughout the nation, civilians demanded freedom from Soviet oppression and their country's communist government. It was one of the defining moments of the Cold War. The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 constituted the most serious threat to the USSR's hegemony throughout the Cold War years. It is a story of extraordinary bravery in a fight for autonomy against a ruthless superpower. Rupert Colley, founder of the bestselling 'History In An Hour' series, recounts the years leading up to the days of October 1956, from the post-First World War years, the Second World War and Nazi Germany's occupation of Hungary, to the post-war Stalinist years. He recounts the days of the uprising from its heroic beginnings to its tragic end; and finishes with an account of the immediate post-revolution years and the subsequent downfall of communism in Hungary in 1989. Illustrated with over 30 contemporary photographs, The Hungarian Revolution, 1956 provides a perfect introduction to one of the momentous occasions in 20th century history.

Book Description :

In 1956 a popular anti-Communist revolt broke out against Russian domination, led by former president Imre Nagy. It was crushed by Soviet and Warsaw Pact tanks with massive bloodshed. The most serious challenge to Soviet domination of Eastern Europe at the time, the 1956 rising sent shockwaves through the Cold War world. The subsequent Soviet-supported regime, under Kadar, steadily liberalized Hungary's politics, economy and society, preparing the way for the velvet revolution after the fall of the USSR. Thus, though the 1956 revolution failed in the short term, it stimulated long-term reforms and provided the moral and political foundation for the modern post-Soviet nation.

Book Description :

Although the 1956 Hungarian uprising failed to liberate the country from Soviet domination, it became a symbol of freedom for people throughout Eastern Europe and beyond. Labeling the events a counterrevolution, communist authorities exacted revenge in two years of terror and intimidation. Then, for the next thirty years, they pursued a policy of forced forgetting, attempting to obliterate public memory of the events. As communism unraveled in the late 1980s, the 1956 revolution was resurrected as inspiration for a new political order. In Imagining Postcommunism, Beverly James demonstrates how 1956 became a foundational myth according to which the bloody events of that fall led to the ceremonial reburial of the martyred prime minister Imre Nagy in 1989, free elections in 1990, and the withdrawal of the last Soviet soldiers on June 19, 1991. She shows how museums, monuments, and holiday rituals have aided the construction of a new Hungary through the reclamation and expression of competing memories of the critical events of 1956. Surveying the dazzling array of ceremonies, exhibitions, and memorials commemorating the revolution and its heros, James invites readers to consider the difference between the communist regime’s master narrative of 1956, with its smug, false unity, and the multiple, polemical stories woven by competing political forces in postcommunist Hungary. A thoughtful application of communication and historical theories on the uses of memory, this study offers a unique perspective on a crucial episode in the history of Eastern Europe.

Book Description :

On November 4, 1956, Soviet military forces moved back into Budapest to once and for all suppress the Hungarian Revolution. Though Dwight Eisenhower repeatedly expressed his commitment to the liberation of Eastern Europe during his 1952 and 1956 presidential bids, the absence of an American military response revealed the inflated nature of "rollback" and led to a degree of international criticism for U.S. policies and institutions. This thesis examines U.S. press coverage of the Hungarian Revolution and reveals that American newsprint, far from being critical of the Eisenhower administration's decision not to intervene despite its aggressive posturing prior to developments in Hungary, helped the president to navigate the implications of his foreign policy promises by glossing over the apparent contradictions in his hands-off response and depicting these international developments through the lens of American foreign policy interests.
