The Bridge at Andau is a 1957 nonfiction book by James Michener [1] chronicling the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Michener was living in Austria in the 1950s. He was at the border of Austria and Hungary during the period in which a significant wave of refugees fled Hungary.

The title of the books refers to an actual bridge on the Austria-Hungary border near the village of Andau. The bridge was destroyed, in 1956 by Soviet troops. It was rebuilt in 1996 as a symbol of tolerance and helpfulness.
