Medal made in Hungary, 1970. This medal is for the “25th Anniversary of the Liberation of Hungary”. Miklos Horthy, the last regent of Hungary (and historical friend to the Axis), ordered a ceasefire against the encroaching Soviet Red Army in 1944. Nazi Germany used this as reason to arrest him and place the fascist Arrow Cross Party into power. The Red Army, reinforced by the newly Communist Romanian troops, surrounded and attacked the city of Budapest. After a brutal street-fight level of combat, the Arrow Cross was defeated, and the Peoples Republic of Hungary was created.
