Historical fiction, based on the dramatic story of Roszka Sandor, the Robin Hood of Hungary, the almost legendary robber chieftain who helped bring success out of failure when the Magyar revolution under Louis Kossuth threatened to collapse. An idealist, a colorful figure of knight erranty in peasant guise, Roszka has long needed an historian. This story holds so close to history that it has the ring of authenticity. There is drama and heroism and romance in the story, and the picture of Kossuth, too, is well done. This is a finer book, a better conceived and executed book that any other of Neumann's that I have read.
