BACKGROUND: The "Levente" was a Hungarian Army Youth Movement that existed from 1921-1945. It was originally established for physical health training. In the 1930's they attempted to circumvent a ban for conscription that was imposed during the Treaty of Trianon and eventually became a "pre-military" organization that made it mandatory for boys between the ages of 12-21 to join. Levente was neither an openly fascist of political organization, although was compared to the Italian and HJ movements.
