Bridge at Andau
by James A. Michener
Book Description: At four o'clock in the morning on a Sunday in November 1956, the city of Budapest was awakened by the shattering sound of Russian tanks tearing the city apart. The Hungarian revolution -- five brief, glorious days of freedom that had yielded a glimpse at a different kind of future -- was over.

But there was a bridge at Andau, on the Austrian border, and if a Hungarian could reach that bridge, he was nearly free. It was about the most inconsequential bridge in Europe, but by an accident of history it became, for a few flaming weeks, one of the most important bridges in the world, for across its unsteady planks fled the soul of a nation....

Here is James A. Michener at his most gripping, with a historic account of a people in desperate revolt, a true story as searing and unforgettable as any of his bestselling works of fiction.

Budapest 1900: A Historical Portrait of a City and Its Culture

A Concise History of Hungary (Cambridge Concise Histories)
by Miklós Molnár (Author), Anna Magyar (Translator)
Book Description This book offers a comprehensive thousand-year history of the land, people, society, culture and economy of Hungary, from its nebulous origins in the Ural Mountains to the 1988 elections. It tells above all the thrilling story of a people who became a great power in the region and then fought against--and were invaded by--Ottomans, Germans and Soviets. The Hungarian people preserved nevertheless a continuous individuality through their Ural-born language and a specifically Hungaro-European culture.

Emperor Francis Joseph, King of the Hungarians
by Andras Gero
Book Description This book examines the evolution of relations between the Habsburg ruler of Hungary and his subjects from the crushing of the Hungarian Revolution of 1849 to the Compromise of 1867 and on to World War I. The book explains the evolution of Francis Joseph´s attitude toward the Hungarians whose public adulation of their king camouflaged a historical condition of enmity that never disappeared.

Istvan II (1116-1131)
by John Tuzson
Book Description Hungarian historical writing has long been distorted by the culture of the historians: the 300-year long Habsburg German-Austrian rule, the nationlistic concepts of the nineteenth century, and more recently, the Communist doctrines. This work corrects these biases by reassessing the bad reputation of the orphan Hungarian king, Istvan II.
