Excerpt from Hungarian Sketches in Peace and War, Vol. 1: From the Hungarian of Moritz Jokal
J our is one of the most popular of the Hungarian prose writers of fiction that sprang up a few years before the late war. His wit, ﬂowing style, and vivid descriptions of Hun gari'an life as it is, joined to a rich fancy and great intensity of feeling, soon made him a favourite with Hungarian readers.
Among the earlier of his productions, those best known are a novel entitled, The Common Days, and a collection of minor tales, published under the title of Wild Flowers.
The present volume has been written for the most part since the late memorable national movement, and embodies descriptions of several of the direst scenes in the civil war which devastated Hungary from the year 1848 to 1850.
