The author's first book, a fictionalized account of his experiences as a prisoner-of-war in Russia during the First World War and afterward, as the Bolshevik revolution took hold. The book was an international sensation, translated into many languages, and it remains Markovits's most read work. After returning to Hungary, he would become a more experimental modernist.
