About the Book
THE BRIEF AND GLORIOUS REIGN OF KING FREDERICK THE BRAVE is the story of an ordinary man nearing the end of his life who finds himself drawn into the 1956 uprising of the Hungarian people against the brutal domination of their country by the Soviet Union. Although nothing in his life prepared him for the emotions he would feel or the actions he would take, Fred Albrecht exhibits leadership skills, military prowess, economic insights, and – above all – courage of legendary proportions. Can a bland and unfulfilling life be redeemed and given meaning and love in the midst of a violent and hopeless struggle against oppression?
