    The Hungarian uprising of 1956 was a spontaneous rebellion by a nation
    against the rule from Moscow - against the faceless, indifferent,
    incompetent functionaries (the 'funkies' David Irving calls them, adapting
    the Hungarian word funkcionáriusok) who in little more than a decade had
    turned their country into a pit of Marxist misery.
    But this fluttering of a national spirit was brief: the Soviet Union
    crushed the uprising with a brutality that shocked the western
    world...
