(p.1) Introduction
Hungary in World War II

Deborah S. Cornelius

Fordham University Press

The full story of Hungary in World War II could not be told until the collapse of the Communist system, forty-five years after the end of the war. Hungary was occupied by the Red Army in 1945, and since the Soviets considered Hungary's participation in the war a crime against the Soviet Union, the war was not commemorated. Most people knew only the version of history learned in school; that the disastrous war was brought on by the fascist reactionary wartime regime, that all political and military leaders of the period were war criminals, and that Hungary had been liberated by the Soviet Army on April 4, 1945. This book's objective in this work is to reveal the story of Hungary in World War II and to understand why people acted as they did under the pressure of the war's turmoil.
