The Phoenix Land jellemzők

The 1000 year-old kingdom of Hungary, which formed the major part of the Austro-Hungarian empire until the last Habsburg fled in 1918, was finally dismembered by the Western Allies by the terms of the peace treaties which followed the First World War. Phoenix-like the Hungarian people survived the horrors of the war, the disappointment of the first socialist republic, the disillusion of the brief but terrifying communist rule of Bela Kun, and the bitterness of seeing their beloved country dismembered by the Treaty of Trianon. This is the world that Miklos Banffy describes in the "Phoenix Land."
