THE HUNGARIAN WAR OF INDEPENDENCE 1848-1849: An Illustrated Military History
Examines the Hungarian revolution and war of independence of 1848-1849 as it transitions from a feudal system to a civic society. All of this happened as part of a wider European revolutionary process in which Hungarian and international events were in constant interaction. The movement towards German and Italian unity, the attempt to create a unified Poland, and the efforts to federalize the Habsburg Empire all influenced developments within Hungary and vice versa. Includes 150 b/w illustrations, 50 color illustrations, and 25 maps.
The revolution and war of independence was an experience shared by the entire population. Hundreds of thousands served in the military and the national guard, attended elections, endured the difficulties caused by the movements of armies, and suffered the horrors of war. Some of the actors - generals and private soldiers, ministers and deputies, priests and civilians - saw fit to record their experiences.
