Gyula Gömbös Proclaims the ‘Self-Contained Hungarian State’

Horthy expected Gömbös’s political style to usher in a renewed period of economic development based on promises concerning solidified state powers, a bolstered economy and increased public safety. With an eye toward furthering irredentist ambitions, Gömbös relied on Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy for support. Eager to establish a corporative state and a party rooted in popular support, Gömbös found himself clashing with Hungary’s political and economic elite, as well as with Horthy himself.
