Revision tip and answer preparation

Revision tip

To help you remember this story, write it as a story twice - once, as though you were an angry Hungarian outraged at the turn of events, then once as a Russian, justifying and explaining what happened.

Answer preparation

As part of your revision, think about the arguments and facts you would use to explain:

  1. Why there was a revolution in Hungary in 1956.
  2. What happened in the Hungarian Revolution.
  3. Why the Russians crushed the Hungarian Revolution.
  4. How the Hungarian Revolution affected East-West relations.
