Thread idea shamelessly stolen from another forum, basic idea is : post pictures of new books/magazines you've aquired.

If it won't encourage you to read more maybe it will encourage you to buy more tongue.gif

Feel free to ask any questions re price/origin, personally i've did some "heavy shopping" in the last 2 months , i just realized looking at the pics that i forgot to add stuff

I just bought last week Kiritescu's famous book about Romania in ww1, three volumes. I paid 90 lei for all three to a street vendor, I dont know if it was the fair price. Hard covers, very good shape.

Posted by: MMM September 28, 2011 01:32 pm
Hey, 20 euros for a 3-volumes hard-cover book? It's a good price, IMO! ohmy.gif
Its historical value, however... that's another thing... dry.gif

What do you mean about it's historical value? It has some historical value or not?The book was printed in 1920's and has a handwriting saying that it use to belong to a certain engineer in 1927.

I have the edition issued in two volumes in 1989. In as far as I know, it is the best reference about Romanian involvement in WW1. I am also curious what are the "problems" with it.
As for the price, in 1989, Vol. 1 was priced 61 lei Vol. 2 was priced 69 lei, a total of 130 lei.
Hth,

As for the value as a history book, that's another thing! My personal oppinion is that Kiriţescu's style is too... patriotic, let's say..., but the facts are facts, regardless the favourable angle in which some of them are written. I've also read through the 1989 edition and I liked the info's, but not so much the "heroics" and stuff, because the state of the Romanian Army in WWI was quite bad, IMO...

Fortunately, the book was written within five years after the end of WW1 when memories were fresh and veterans were still alive. That is priceless.
We never had the chance to do the same after WW2 because those veterans that were not in a Gulag were too scared of Securitate to speak. Now, we can interview these veterans, but they forgot so much.

I looked through the book again today. What a great book! I can only dream of a similar book about the Romanian involvement in WW2. In fact, Kiritzescu's two-volume book about WW1 is on my shelf right next to the three-volume book about "Romania in WW2" published also in 1989 by a "committee of historical researchers". What pile of dirge. The Romanian involvement in Russia is treated so briefly in the first volume, that you blink and you may miss it. Germany is described as "occupier of Romania". Volume 2 is dedicated entirely to anything after 23 August (and, oh, how great the comunists were!) and volume 3 is dedicated to how great the Communist Party was (led by the beloved son of the nation, Nicolae Ceausescu). Rubbish!
In contrast, Kiritzescu's book covers everything, the geopolitical situation, alliances, every battle, every action, and the aftermath. The timeline of events at the end of the book is so enlightening. Such a superb book! It also mentions things that "nationalists" may find difficult to digest such as the fact that Romania was invaded, lost a large chunk of its territory, the government and Royal household went into exile, Romania fought back, lost the war, was forced to sign a surrender (Pacea de la Bucuresti), then declared war again just a few hours before the Armistice. Also, I found it almost impossible to believe that in a book printed in Romania in 1989 there was a section dedicated to the monumental disaster that was what in 1989 was actually celebrated as "Marea Revolutie Socialista din Octombrie". The Russian Revolution is described in the book as the cause of the collapse of the Russian Army, the source of indiscipline and mutiny among the Russian Army and the main thing that eventually led Romania to lose the war. One must appreciate the courage of the publisher to describe in such detail what in effect was tragedy and a disaster for humanity at a time when the communists celebrated that as a victory and a great thing for the humanity!
I did not find much "overzealous patriotism" in the book. It seems to be actually "cold", factual and to the point. There is some wax-lyrical stuff about Ecaterina Teodoroiu, but that is about it. There is no praise of the "leader" or the "political party". There is no trace of that "how great are we" slimey grime that cretins call "nationalism" today. But there are stories of battles lost, poor equipment, bad conditions, famine, pestilence, tragedy and victory against all odds. And that was the truth.
If anything Kiritzescu's book MUST be used as a template to write the true history of Romanian involvement in WW2.
This book should be reissued and given free with the newspapers likew they do with other books these days.

Well, the book written by him about WWII seems a little different from the one we're talking in here! Indeed, it was "edited" by his son, but... so much for the template! sad.gif

Posted by: Radub October 02, 2011 09:28 pm
I don't have his book on WW2, so I cannot comment.
Irrespective of that, his book on WW1 can still be used as a template now for a book on WW2.
I do not think that there is one single book about Romania in WW2 written before 1989 that accurately reflects the truth. The communists were simply unwilling to adress the Romanian activity in Russia. Now we can discuss that openly without fear. So, it is the perfect opportunity to write a proper book on WW2.

write a proper book on WW2

I can agree to that! Also WWI was used as propaganda material for every side involved in a political "battle"...
The writing of a "proper" ww2 book presumes quite a lot of documentation, knowledge and work-hours (I'd go as far as "work-years"...), which could not be done witout proper funding! And here's where the money and interests appear... because if X is willing to pay "zece mii dă dolaaaaari, banii meeeeeeei", then surely he would like to "have a say" in the matter! And then the "proper" part is quite over!
There's one more thing in here: the "old" historians are "broke" (aka partisans of some thesis) and the new ones are simply too new (even Cioroianu, which wouldn't have what it takes to do that, IMHO) to be believable.
But we're getting out of topic here.
Getting back to Mr. Kiriţescu (Sr., that is), no problem with not possessing his ww2 book - no loss there!
Cheers,
Mihai

Well, if you get Jiji to sponsor you, you get what deserve. biggrin.gif

Shortage of funds is an issue for anyone. But most books/projects that I have been involved with were driven by passionate people who spend their own time and money to get anything done. Personal passion may get things done, but money might not. Unde dragoste nu e, nimic nu e. And trust me, if you want to make your way into "Academia Romana" someday, you better get busy writing. But if you want to make your way into "Forbes Top 100", writing history books ain't it.

Some day, we will have a good book about WW2. We need it!

I fully agree with Radu. One does not necessarily need sponsors to write a history book. Passion and dedication would suffice (paired with proper knowledge and open mind, of course).

For someone to write a detailed book about a country's army during WW2, a decade is certainly needed. Perhaps even more. See, for example, my own long-lasting project to map everything to do with the Hungarian Army in the 1919-1945 time period. I started the project well over ten years ago, and it's only now, after switching Publishers, that the publication is within grasp.

And yes, we certainly need a good, objective book on the military history of Rumania during WW2 (a notable publication, but with shortcomings, is Mark Axworthy's book often quoted in this forum).

Gen. Dénes

P.S. I believe this interesting issue would deserve it's own topic.

There is a saying: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!".

Yes, a book of this kind needs to be big because it is a big subject, but if Kiritzescu could hand-write a 1000-page book about WW1, surely using word processors (or dictation-to-text programs), computerised file management systems and cross-file search engines could make it a tad easier nowadays. The truth is that there are some good books available on the subject and they cover many disparate areas, but I was thinking more about a unified large piece of work similar to Kiritzescu's book on WW1. Axworthy's book is indeed a good effort.

Denes, I am glad to hear that your book is on its way. I have been "watching" it on Amazon for more than one year.

What is the name of Kiritzescu's book on WW2? I did not know that it existed and I cannot find anything about it either.

Although it's not so good, I won't sell my copy; the funny story is that I've acquired it during my second year in college from a guy who sold it because "he didn't like the style". But in those "Early Ages" (1997), there weren't any other good - or at least decent - books on the subject! The market was flooded with junk-style writings from J. C. Drăgan, if you know what I'm talking about...

Speaking of rare books, I think the book below is pretty rare.
I want to thank the gentleman from București who helped me acquire this book.

It is a excellent book, lots of information, many very interesting photos.

This book is a stupid one.
I red and it was a nonsence.
When I told about it to Lucaci Mihai (who was a pilot in this scuadron) he became very angry and my words about this book were very "soft" comparing to his....
Waste of paper.

@C-2, Dénes, Radub, in my opinion you are too harsh, the book is published in 1994 and the authors write in the preface that it is not a history book, quote: ”Prezentul volum pleacă de la realitate. Unitatea de aviație care a împrumutat titlul cărții a existat, ... , Lucrarea se vrea o frescă în care se completează romantismul zburătorilor cu realitatea crâncenă a războiului aerian, ... , Pierderile în oameni și material volant au fost mari., ... , știind de la bun început că lupta aeriană se va solda cu victime, ceea ce, pentru vânătorii români și germani - în minoritate comparativ cu americanii - constituie o tragedie., ... , Nutrim convingerea că ele vorbesc despre virtuțile aviatorilor militari, despre spiritul de sacrificiu și dragostea lor de țară și neam, care i-au animat și pe luptătorii din unitatea al cărui titlu îl poartă această lucrare”, considering the time when it was written and published: 1993/1994, the intent of the authors: not a history book, the price: 2,47 lei (0,46 euro cent), I think the book is: all right.

Ionionescu,
I do not have the book. I have no idea what it contains. I am only talking about the cover. Just in case you misunderstood what I meant, please allow me to explain: the cover is ugly and stupid and the planes/events depicted have no bearing on reality.

However, if Denes and C-2 think that the contents are a precise reflection of the cover, I have no reason to disagree with them.

Radu

Posted by: C-2 October 26, 2011 06:55 pm
I red the book...
Lawsy in my point of view.
But after a member of the squadron said it was bs I knew I was right.
Mr Lucaci mentionet that it was all fiction and almost all was invented.

I recently acquired a very interesting book, although the references to Romania are quite scarce. But here's a "funny" thing: on his first visit to the US President, while lodging at the White House, V.M. Molotov, the former "friend" of Ribentropp, was also packing a pistol, a loaf of bread and a large sausage! I can only figure the faces of those who saw that! ohmy.gif

Well, sorry if the image is too small.

The authors are Colonel Vizanti and Major Urlatianu. It's a 1932 book on war strategy and Romania in a future war.

@Alexei2102, thanks for the answer, do you mean the one from page 34?
Can you tell why its a fake (no official record in documents?).
Are there more fakes in the book?

@Alexei2102, can you explain why do you think this badge is a fake? Thanks!

What's that??? What war, what author, "how much is the bathrobe"?  tongue.gif

Well, sorry if the image is too small.

The authors are Colonel Vizanti and Major Urlatianu. It's a 1932 book on war strategy and Romania in a future war.

Thanks! Colonel Vizanti is mentioned among the mlitary thinkers of the inter-war period...

This is a absolutely fabulous album with unedited photos, printed on very good quality paper.
The photos, maps, and the list with the volunteers who fought in Siberia are all by Elie Bufnea (photo on the back of the book).

You have to take with a pinch of salt what C. Bergström writes on the air war on the Eastern Front, as in my opinion he tends to lean towards the Soviet side and take the Soviet claims as is.

The 2nd edition (2009) of "Moţii...." is of extremelly poor quality of paper, printing and page layout. I had years ago the 1st edition (1928) which was waaaaaaaaaay much better than the new one. 1st edition was of so good quality that it suffer no comparison with the new one, which is practically "bătaie de joc".

They do not care anymore, they are not motivated to work hard or they don't know how to scan and improve the original images... I've seen this many times in the new books. Blocky images, low/high contrasts and what not.

It's not only about that: the paper quality is poor, the making of the book is extremelly poor (I just took a look at it and pages started to fly around!!!) and many other faults. It was a good oportunity for mr Felea, who edited it, to make some easy money: the book had a price of 40 lei!

... and here's a scan which puzzled me quite much: what unit is that?
The page is from a chapter written by general Zeitzler (then chief of the OKW)

How about this one? The guy seems to be a "fan" of Antonescu, perhaps even a hard-liner as Gh. Buzatu... Will be back with details after reading it!

I know, I know, it is from 2011 - and if Denes wouldn`t have told me about it, I wouldn't have got it! There are two PHD's, one covering 22.06.41/23.08.44 (Pentelescu) and one from 1944 until 12.05.45 (Nicoară). Some gu'ys on the forum are mentioned at the Annexae part! biggrin.gif

An interesting book, although from a "controversial" author...
Worth mentioned that I read for the first time clearly stated that the German Army had NO INTEREST in actually instructing and / or improving the fighting capacity of the Romanian Army. A little exaggerated, perhaps, but still true! The Germans could have done way more in the months preceding 22.06.41...

That's a nonsense. Everyone, only with a casual knowledge on the topic, but with an open mind knows that the Germans did have an interest in equipping and instructing the Rumanians. Not because they were 'friends', of course, but because Hitler had plans for Rumania to take active part in the assault on the Soviet Union, on the would-be front's right flank (just as for the Finns, on the left flank). Rumania was also located geopolitically in the right area, and had lots of wealth the Germans needed badly. Therefore, Rumania was actually Germany's preferred East European ally. Of course, they could have done even more, to prepare the army even better for the upcoming onslaught.
Nothing new or out of ordinary in these statements.

Gen. Dénes

Is it???
By studying carefully more aspects, there appears a question when regarding the German Military Mission in Ro.
Why did they train only three Romanian infantry divisions?
I mean: OK, they did not have the trucks and tanks for armoured divisions, but why not train the infantry?
(the answer, from more than one source, would be: ”distrust” towards the Romanian pro-allied leadership and the fear that the Romanian army, once it had the equipment, could take back Transylvania by means of force...)

Larry Watts is a good historian but this idea is a nonsense.

Larry Watts is a historian ”gone native”, so to say... He somewhat romanised himself. As for the idea, nonsensical as it may be, I have not found any counter-arguments for what I just posted above. And there are more facts to support my hypothesis,, but this would require a separate topic. (Admins, please!)

"Aliaţi incompatibili" explică de ce teoria relaţiilor internaţionale a eşuat în explicarea comportamentului României în alianţă pe timp de război şi cum a reuşit să reziste cererilor colosului german pentru o contribuţie nelimitată la efortul de război al Axei.


That sounds rather vague. What theory of international relations did he choose to test? And to what behavior within the alliance he refers?
