Title American Policy toward Eastern Bloc Countries Influencing the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.
Publication Date Jun 2013
Media Count 112p
Personal Author K. A. Ferguson
Abstract The Hungarian Revolution exposed the contradictions in U.S. policy that had existed since the formation of the Psychological Warfare Campaign during the Truman Administration and its growth during the Eisenhower Administration. Because of leadership failures and organizational problems within the Eisenhower Administration, this psychological warfare effort encouraged the Hungarian people to rise up in rebellion, even though the Administration was unprepared to support such an uprising and the Department of State had opposed such agitation. Throughout the revolution, Radio Free Europe continued to broadcast messages of support to the fighters on the streets of Budapest. Exploration of the formation and organization of the Psychological Warfare Campaign presents insights into the thoughts of policy makers in the early days of the Cold War.
