Hungary: Painful choices, persistent dilemmas

Hajnalka Vincze

Although the oft-heard criticisms of Hungarian defence policy can not be dismissed as groundless, their exaggerations need to be relativized. The writing addresses in three chapters the issue of the armed forces’ ceaseless pseudo-reforms, of Hungary’s “pragmatic atlanticism”, and the “why” and "how” of Hungarian participation in Iraq.
