Synopsis

Days of Battle describes a hitherto neglected part of the military history of Hungary during World War II. In three separate studies, Dr Norbert Szamveber, drawing from files and documentation from German, Hungarian and Soviet sources, presents detailed accounts of four important clashes of German-Hungarian and Soviet armour north of the river Danube, in the southern territory of the historical Upper Hungary (part of Hungary between 1938 and 1945, at the present time now part of Slovakia). The first is an account of the battle between the Ipoly and Garam rivers during the second half of December 1944, in which theelite Hungarian Division Szent Laszlo saw action for the first time. The second study is about the fierce tank battle of Komarom, fought between the 6-22 January 1945. This was an integral part of the Battle for Budapest, parallel in time with Operation Konrad. The third part of the book describes the combat during the German Operation Sudwind in February 1945 and the Soviet attack launched in the direction of Bratislava in March 1945. About the Author Dr. Norbert Szamveber is a Hungarian archivist and military historian, born in 1975 in Budapest.

Since 1997 he has worked in the Hungarian Ministry of Defence Institute of Military History Museum in Budapest, and since 2005 has been the Chief of the Hungarian Military Archives.
