It wasn’t just the Germans and the Russians on the Eastern Front…

May 11, 2012

…there were Romanians too, as allies to both sides – with the Germans from 1940 to 1944, and then with the Russians 1944 until the end of the war.

I found a great website all about the Romanian Armed Forces during WWII, called Romanian Armed Forces in the Second World War. It has Orders of Battle (OOB), a discussion forum, details about weapons, details about notable battles etc. I found it while looking for information about personal/portable flamethrowers and it brought me to this page about Romanian Army Pioneers (who used German-made portable flamethrowers).

I haven’t explored it too much, but so far it’s been informative. The discussion forum has yielded photos, which are always helpful.

Research on!

    Nice looking site. The Italians were there in some force also I think, you could always use good old Airfix guys for them

    Have been using Romanians for about 20 years. The ones I have been using are the Airfix Italians. They are now in to get a total re-base, bit of a repaint and, possibly, merge with a couple of packs of the Hat Romanians.

    I am a total advocate of http://www.worldwar2.ro/ It has so much almost unobtainable information. The other reference I would recommend is Mark Axworthy’s superb book “Third Axis, Fourth Ally”. Have read it about 4 times.

      Glad to know that it really is a good site.
      I hadn’t thought of using the Airfix Italians as Romanians…I’ve got the ESCI Italians – do I just cut the crows’ feathers off the helmets?
