A Lifetime for Hungary is the memoir of Jeno halmaji Bor, Lieutenant-Field Marshal of the Royal Hungarian Army during World War II. During the course of his long life, this Hungarian patriot experienced the history of the 20th Century in the making, having participated as a combatant in both world wars. His autobiography, translated from its original version in Hungarian, chronicles Bor's experiences in the armed forces of the Austro- Hungarian Empire, and later as an officer in the Hungarian Army. The narrative covers his life as a cadet before World War I, his combat experiences during the Great War, and his steady rise through the ranks of the post-WWI Hungarian Armed Forces to become a senior general during the turmoil that surrounded Hungary's occupation by Germany and subsequent fall to the Soviets. The final part of the book deals with the General's life as a POW, then a refugee, before his eventual emigration to the USA.
