Forced March is a new edition of Radnóti’s selected poems, in the powerful and moving translations of Clive Wilmer and George Gömöri. Poet Dick Davis explains why this book is so important: ‘Radnóti has emerged as the major poetic voice to record the civilian experience of World War II in occupied Europe. His poems are an extraordinary record of a mind determined to affirm its civilization in the face of overwhelming odds. He is one of the very greatest poets of the twentieth century, and Clive Wilmer’s and George Gömöri’s versions are by far the best that exist in English.’ By the time the Second World War broke out, Miklós Radnóti was already an established poet. When the Nazis took over his home-town of Budapest, Radnóti was sent to a labour camp at Bor in occupied Serbia. Then, in 1944, as the Germans retreated from the eastern front, Radnóti and his fellow labourers were force-marched back into Hungary. On 9 November, too weak to carry on, he and many comrades were executed by firing-squad. When the bodies were exhumed the following year, Radnóti was identified by a notebook of poems in his greatcoat pocket. These poems, published in 1946 as Foaming Sky, secured his position as one of the giants of modern Hungarian poetry.

In poetry and prose, Ruth Whitman recreates the last nine months in the life of Hanna Senesh-poet, pioneer, and hero of World War II. Having immigrated to Palestine in 1939, Hanna later decided to return to her native Hungary to help save its Jewish population from the Nazis. She trained with the British Intelligence, parachuted into Yugoslavia, and eventually slipped across the border to Hungary. Tragically, the very next day she was denounced by an informer. After nine months of imprisonment, interrogation, and torture, Hanna Senesh, aged twenty-three, was executed. She left behind a legacy of poems and her diary. Her work is now part of the folk heritage of Israel. Ruth Whitman has written an inspiring postscript to Hanna's diary. Based on research and interviews with Hanna's family, friends, and fellow parachutists, the book begins where time and circumstance forced Hanna to leave off. The result is a sensitive portrait of a remarkable woman.
