This book is the first complete study in English of Antonescu's part in the Second World War. Antonescu was a major ally of Hitler and Romania fielded the third largest Axis army, joined the Tripartite Pact in November 1940 as a sovereign state and participated in the attack on the Soviet Union of 22 June 1941 as an equal partner of Germany.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Dennis Deletant is one of the leading authorities on the history of Romania since the 1930s. His well-deserved scholarly reputation for thoroughness, fairness, and honesty is amply demonstrated in this exhaustively-researched and well-written study which aims to describe in detail, and to render historical judgment on, the wartime Romanian government of Ion Antonescu. His book fills a significant historiographical gap while providing a balance sheet for this hotly-controverted era in the Romanian past...In short, this is a fine piece of work, meticulously researched, and reasonably argued.' - Paul E. Michelson, Reviews in History

'Hitler's Forgotten Ally provides a brilliant demonstration of how a very gifted historian can take advantage of the opening of the East European archives in advancing the knowledge of his field.' - Radu Ioanid, Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions

'The richness of this work cannot remotely be caught in a short review...Hitler's Forgotten Ally...should be read by anyone who studies, teaches or simply thinks about the History of the Second World War. Professor Deletant has written an impressive and powerful piece of scholarship.' - Jonathan Steinberg, The European Legacy

'...this book is a notable achievement, and makes a strong case for putting Antonescu's Romania back at the heart of Axis Europe.' - Paul Betts, SEER, The Slavonic and East European Review

'The prime merit of the book lies in its systematic investigation into the tumultuous evolution of the Antonescu regime and into his personal life. In addition, the combination of historical details with societal factors brings new facets to this analysis. Thus, examination of the Iron Guard leadership and of religious confessions in Romania helps to decipher the atmosphere of those times. In addition, Deletant's writing style makes the book a gripping read, revealing the intimate connections between the personal life of the dictator and the political evolution of his regime. These points, coupled with the fact that most probably Antonescu remained the only leader who could publicly contradict the Fuhrer, offer an incisive image of 'Hitler's forgotten ally'.' - Lucian N. Leustean, European History Quarterly
