£59.95 £25.00

Hungary began slowly, quietly building an airforce in the late 1930s in contravention of the Treaty of Versailles, which forbade Hungary (and Germany) an air force. During World War II, the Kingdom of Hungary was a member of the Axis powers. The Hungarian aces fought gallantly against heavy odds, this book tells the unique story of the 38 Hungarian air aces of the Second World War. The overwhelming majority of the related materials have been lost or destroyed, so the author has demonstrated truly Herculean efforts during his 23-year-long extensive research to write this work.
