Hungary in the Age of the Two World Wars
Maria Ormos focuses on the Horthy Period and assesses the immeasurable human and material costs caused by Arrow-Cross rule and the Soviet dominate provisional wartime administration. This book clarifies all the historical factors that affected Hungarian society during this era-including the worldwide financial crisis of the Great Depression.

She also identifies 1932 as a year when limited economic recovery and diplomatic success shifted to the exploitation of Hungary for German war preparation. Finally, this volume analyzes the process of realignment of Hungarian society in the context of vital areas of land tenure and educational, scientific, and social policy.
