    I am seeking the e-mail address for professor thomas l. sakmyster, professor emeritus of history at the University of Cincinnati. i wish to correspond with prof. sakmyster regarding diplomats of the royal hungarian legation in berlin early 1940s

  5. I actually have a question. I have tried without success to find a website where I can purchase a copy of Professor Sakmyster’s book Hungary’s Admiral on Horseback: Miklos Horthy, 1918-1944, in English. The book is great ,and has been (and will be) very valuable to me in my Graduate research on Horthy, and I’d very much like to be able to have my own copy. So I was wondering is Professor Sakmyster happened to have a spare copy I could purchase (or if he knew of somewhere I could find a copy.)
