For the people of Hungary.
We do not speak of a Hungarian Revolution. We speak of the Hungarian agony. from the moment when the Communist regime in Budapest fired upon an unarmed crowd and turned its quarrel with the Hungarian people from a political quarrel which it could not win into an armed revolt which, with Soviet aid, it could not lose, the suppression of the Hungarian resistance was inevitable.
Of the six correspondents and photographers who were in Hungary for time Inc. during the fighting, four were held for a time by Russian troops, one was wounded, and all survived by what seemed a series of miracle.
The Hungarian chapter was transmitted first of all by courageous journalists like those work appears in this book. But the story needs rehearing and retelling by man to man, and by generation to generation, so that the priceless thing fought for may keep its central place in our hearts.
