Default A Life for Hungary Memoirs of Admiral Nicholas Horthy Regent of Hungary

Nonsense. Modern Hungary per se was never a naval power; it is a
land-locked country. The Austro-Hungarian Empire, of which Hungary was
a part 18671918, had a coastline on the Adriatic and a navy of sorts,
but was never a "major sea power" on the scale of, say, Great Britain,
or anywhere near that.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire was dissolved in 1918, Hungary becoming
an independent nation. In 1920, rather than being a "major sea power,"
it had no navy at all.

Hungary was the dominant country in Central Europe. After
being on the losing side of two world wars, it was whittled down to
the much smaller country it is today.


Misleading. Almost the entirety of Hungary's "whittling down" came
after World War 1. Territorial adjustments after WW2 were relatively
minor, and mainly involved return of territories gained by alliance
with Nazi Germany, restoring the post-WW1 borders.

Look at you go girl. Jack of all trades, master of none.

You once admitted you had no expertise about Greek politics when you
opened your big fat Greek wedding mouth and opined about the same.
Will you make a similar admission here since I call your B.S.?

If you have significantly different information about Hungary's post-
WW1 and WW2 borders, feel free to present it. Perhaps you can
invalidate the encyclopedias I consulted, and enshrine Sam Sloan as a
leading authority.
