This title is presented with a new foreword by Istvan Deak. The
battle of Budapest in the bleak winter of 1944-45 was one of the
longest and bloodiest city sieges of World War II. From the
appearance of the first Soviet tanks on the outskirts of the
capital to the capture of Buda Castle, 102 days elapsed. In terms
of human trauma, it comes second only to Stalingrad, comparisons to
which were even being made by soldiers, both German and Soviet,
fighting at the time. This definitive history covers their
experiences, and those of the 800,000 non-combatants around whom
the battle raged.
