A revealing chronicle of the Hungarian revolt against Communism in 1956. Michner writes about the lives of the Hungarians under communism and how they spontaneously revolted against their oppressors. Thought to have won for 5 glorous days, the Communist come back with a vengeance and decimate the city of Budapest.

This is a one sided view of the battle. Michner tells the story with composit characters drawn from refugees he interviewed. It is an eye-opening view of life under communism and the eternal desire for freedom.
