I am not aware of it. However, Hungarians usually are not very good with foreign languages, so I don't think there will be an English version of the book.

Hi Denes,

Thanks for the tip. It may answer some questions I have asked on this and other sites about the Hungarian order of battle in Northern Transilvania in 1940. Please let me know if the book contains that sort of information and I will buy a copy. Fortunately a friend of my sister's boyfriend has just married a Hungarian girl and they live nearby, so I might at last get to understand what Hungarian books say!

Cheers,

Sid.

I will certainly let you know. I expect to receive the book in mid-November (it has not been released yet).

Very interesting. I am wondering how did a Hungarian girl end up in Devon? ;)
Please say 'szervusz' to her from my part...

Hi Denes,

They live in Potters Bar, north of London. She is a self-made woman. She comes from a poor family in the east of Hungary and was brought up by her grandmother. She studied English and came to London to work as a waitress, but soon got better jobs and eventually started her own small business making sandwiches for office workers.

There are two waves of Hungarians over here - the post 1956 variety and the post-1990 variety. As Britain and Ireland are the only countries that have allowed the new EU countries' citizens freedom to work without restriction there has been a third wave in the last year.

Does the book have an ISBN number? I have found it on the internet, but without an ISBN number it will be difficult to order.

Cheers,

Sid.

Hi Denes,

Many thanks for the ISBN. I am trying to get a copy now through some Hungarians who work with my nephew.

Have you seen it yet?

Cheers,

Sid.

No, I have not seen it yet, but it's on the top of my priority list.
I'll keep you informed.

The book has finally been published late last year. However, only in very limited number (and very cheap, too); therefore, it's almost impossible to find. I could not order it through any on-line booksellers.

The person who promised to send it to me actually sent it to... Toronto, USA! Fortunately, it was returned to him, albeit damaged, and now he promised to send it to me again (of course, I will have to foot the double postage fee).
In the meantime, my mother managed to find one, using her relations (and a nice box of chocolates), so I know I have a copy waiting for me in Hungary.

As soon as I'll finally have the book, I'll post a note here.

Will that book be published through ARPIA?
Did Mr. Stinghe do some research in the archives as well?
