HistorianLendvai has produced a sophisticated narrative of complex events, interweaving political, international, military, social, personal, and intellectual history into a thick fabric of historical text. Importantly, he argues that 1956 is an important year in Hungarian, and Western, heritage. Commendably, Lendvai shows his intellectual debt to Hungarian scholars throughout the text. One Day That Shook the Communist World is one of the most readable and best English language accounts of the Hungarian 1956 Uprising.
