MAGYAR WARRIORS VOLUME 2 The History of the Royal Hungarian Armed Forces, 1919-1945

£49.95 £7.99

The Hungarian armed forces (known as the Honvedseg) were built up from the 1920s, their expansion gaining momentum once Hungary became free of the strict post-First World War Trianon treaty limitations in August 1938. Politically, Hungary was looking for a strong ally, who would help it to recover at least some of the territories containing sizeable Magyar ethnic populations that had been lost after the First World War. Initially, in the mid-1930s, Italy gave political assistance and supplied military materiel; then – on the eve of the Second World War – Germany also lent some support. Volume 2 covers in great details the activity of the air force, the river flotilla, as well as the combat operations of the Honvedseg .
