 THE MAGYAR FRONT

      The Magyar Front is the official English language journal of the International Hungarian Military History Preservation Society (from 1999-2007 it was the newsletter for the Vancouver Chapter of the World Federation of Hungarian Veterans).  It is published quarterly, issued to IHMHPS members and supporters, and bears the same name as the old Frontline Fighters’ bi-weekly newspaper - our new journal is a tribute to the venerable veteran’s association of the past. 

      IHMHPS members receive hard-copies of the Magyar Front by mail. Current year’s issues are available to members only.  Below is a list of all of the past issues of the Magyar Front. Click on the issue you would like to see, and it will open in PDF file format.
