Hi Dcomsfor,

The content of the book looks promising, especially if one doesn't have Hungarian language volumes on the same subject.

My main doubt is over the title. There is no substantive evidence that the Hungarians (or even the Székely) are descendants of the Huns. There is also the problem that, in many Anglo-Saxon minds the word "Hun" is pejoratively associated with the Germans, especially of WWI and WWII.

Is it too late to change the title? The subtitle, Hungarian Mobile Forces in WWII, might be more serviceable and self explanatory.

Cheers,

Sid.
