Best book ever on the 1956 Hungarian Revolution for genuine communism.
14 May 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best book you will ever find (so far anyway) on the mass uprising of the Hungarian people in 1956. It was a revolution, not to hand the country back to the big landowners and capitalists who the workers and farmers had chased out in 1945-46, but to overthrow the tyrannical Stalinists - dictatorial bureaucrats who pose as communists. This book shows that the Hungarian workers, farmers, youth and students were fighting for genuine socialism and communism run by the working people themselves. Unfortunately, they were not strong enough and the international working class was not conscious enough to come to their aid. And so, with the Soviet invasion, 20,000 Hungarians and 3,500 Russian soldiers were killed, 10s of thousands wounded, deported or starved and the revolution crushed. What is important today, as the crisis of capitalism dispossesses and marginalizes 100s of millions of people worldwide, is that the Hungarian workers knew that they could build socialism if they were in power.
