Hi all again,

Does anyone know any books about the Romanian Cavalry in the WW2? I'm particularly interested in the way they lived and trained, memories...

Also, are there any veterans from the Cavalry left? Can they be contacted?


Thank you

I was able to find some books about the German Cavalry (Deutsche Kavallerie), written in German.  I can study them, since I know German.

If you can read German, try to find: Ion Valeriu Emilian - Der phantastische Ritt. Rumäniens Kavallerie an der Seite der Deutschen Wehrmacht im Kampf gegen den Bolschewismus. - K.W. Schütz, 1977 - ISBN 387725084X (Mit einem Vorwort des General der Gebirgstruppe Hubert Lanz), you will find it interesting.

Thank you very much... I already bought the first book from Okazii.ro, waiting for an answer from its current owner...

I will try to find the german book, thank you very much. Any idea where I could look?

I read the second book and I am now reading the first one. Does anyone know if Emilian Ezechil is still alive and if I could get in touch with him anyhow?

I found this article dated 2009 and I understand he lives in Bucharest, so it would be easy for me to meet him. But we're in 2012 now and I don't know how he is now...
