¡Levantamiento! Hungría 1956: La pesadilla de una nación es un libro de David Irving, descrito por un juez del Reino Unido como el principal experto en la Segunda Guerra Mundial, examina el levantamiento espontáneo de 1956 de los húngaros contra el gobierno de Moscú: contra los funcionarios anónimos, indiferentes e incompetentes que habían convirtieron su país en un pozo de miseria marxista en una corta década: los funkis, los llama Irving, adaptando la palabra húngara funkcionariusok.

Localizó e interrogó a los hombres que habían sido secuestrados, exiliados, encarcelados y juzgados junto con el primer ministro Imre Nagy, condenado a muerte, y miembros de la familia de Nagy. Es la evaluación que Irving hace de Imre Nagy lo que llamará la atención, junto con su descubrimiento entre los registros oficiales de evidencia de que el antisemitismo fue uno de los motores del levantamiento popular.

El estudio resultante es una autopsia de una revolución fallida, vista tanto desde el interior de las cámaras del consejo de los poderosos como desde el nivel de la calle. Este es un drama convincente, con un elenco de diez millones.

The Guardian: “Irving combina hábilmente fuentes. . . El resultado es desconcertante, como leer el guión de una película, pero funciona especialmente bien”.

Uprising! Hungary 1956: One Nation’s Nightmare is a book by David Irving, author of many well-known dissident histories including The Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe, the Destruction of Dresden, and Hitler’s War, which began to re-examine another piece of the world’s tragic history: the spontaneous national uprising of the Hungarians against rule from Moscow against the faceless, indifferent, incompetent functionaries who had turned their country into a pit of Marxist misery in one short decade: the funkies, Irving calls them, adapting the Hungarian word funkcionariusok, and there is no doubt that after this book the word funky will have a new meaning in the English language.

He could hardly have found a more topical year to publish his results: the year in which the Russians invaded Afghanistan, in which Rhodesia has chosen a Marxist government, in which Yugoslavia faces a new Soviet presence.

Irving was officially permitted to visit Budapest several times, he talked with eye witnesses and survivors there and obtained new documents and photographs from them. He traced and questioned the men who had been kidnapped, exiled, imprisoned and put on trial with the prime minister Imre Nagy, who was sentenced to death, and members of Nagy’s family.

It is Irving’s assessment of Imre Nagy that will raise eyebrows, together with his discovery among official records of evidence that anti-Semitism was one of the motors of the popular uprising. He has made use of hundreds of interrogation reports prepared at the time by American agencies, and supports this material by diplomats’ diaries and the recollections of western newspapermen who went into Hungary.

The resulting study is a compelling autopsy of a failed revolution: viewed both from inside the council chambers of the powerful and from street level, where the nameless rebels are given names personalities, and profiles by Irving, thanks to the detailed records of the American psychiatrists who saw them. It is a book with a cast of ten million. David Irving tries with humor and concrete examples to understand what built up the revolutionary rage within them.

The real lessons are about the Soviet Union’s unfrontiered cynicism: the Kremlin leaders have never cared about world opinion, and it is folly to expert them to abide by normal rules of diplomacy when their own imperialistic conquests are at stake. The funkies know that the world has a short memory. In fact the funkies bank on it.

    Not an easy book to read, (particularly if you are not a Hungarian, and you have never set foot in the country).
    In order to truly understand what actually happened to Hungary, one must be aware of all of the events that led up to the events of 1956: No one does that better than David Irving!
    I look foreward to the response of my Hungarian friends- after I have loaned them this book.

    Who cares about the Hungarian Revolution of 1956? After reading this book, I can tell you, I do. Uprising ! takes you step by step through the insanity of totalitarian political systems. It shows you the indispensable part played by individual personalities. It shows, in stark detail, the undeniable relationship of human events in Hungary of 1956 to Western Civilization of 2017.

    A fascinating book filled to the brim with all the facts about the conflict. It is an easy book to read and flows smoothly from chapter to chapter. Mr. Irving has a great gift for writing.
