what a terrific tome! Helion's series promises to be the definitive history of Hungary's military between the World Wars. It's brilliantly researched, competently compiled and exhaustively illustrated. And it carries my highest recommendation. Get this vital venture. Then line-up behind me for Volume 2! Rabidly recommended! --Cybermodeler
