"Erich Lessing was the first photographer to arrive in Hungary, and he documented the short-lived uprising and its aftermath in a series of photographs, reproduced here in stunning duotone. These world-famous images bring to life once more the hope and euphoria of the first days of the revolt, so soon to be followed by its brutal suppression."--BOOK JACKET."
