This new addition covers Hungarian armour, a subject receiving little previous coverage and with many images previously unpublished. – Most Highly Recommended. The Hungarian Army started with Fiat tanks, similar to the French Renault light tanks of WWI. There was indigenous design and development of armoured vehicles including armoured trains but historians have tended to concentrate of German armour supplied to Hungary in the limited coverage previously published. Hungarian troops were involved in the annexation of Czechoslovakia, when Hungary tried to regain some territory that it held prior to the creation of Czechoslovakia. The Hungarian Army then fought alongside the Germans on the Eastern Front to the end when the Red Army occupied Hungary. Through this period, the Hungarians were always short of adequate armoured vehicles although they did receive some examples of late model German medium and heavy tanks. The author has offered a very capable review of the subjects and his text is supported with a fine selection of rare images. This is a very interesting work, not least because of the serious shortage of reviews on the subjects.
