the desperate




In Hungary, the national movement led by Kossuth was crushed and Austrian hegemony was restored, but supporters continued with violent actions. To root out the guerrillas, the army rounds up suspects and imprisons them in an isolated fort. The authorities do not have the identity of the guerrilla leaders, who are supposed to be present among the prisoners. However, they know enough about some of the suspects to apply treacherous forms of coercion effectively.
