I think he has a sponsor.
Mr Stinghe does not like taking sides (you know what I meen).
He has enought material at home I belive.
At 86 he cannot go to Pitesti.He doesn't drive much anymore.
When I invited him to come with me to the new aviation museum,he refused because "They'll keep me there". :D

Has anybody read David Glantz's new book on the failed Targu Frumos Soviet Offensive? The title of the book is:

Red Storm over the Balkans: The Failed Soviet Invasion of Romania, Spring 1944 (Modern War Studies) (Hardcover)

I just started reading it, so I haven't yet formed an opinion on the book.

What I can say so far is that it is documented mainly from Soviet military archives. It goes into minute details - down to battalion levels both from the German and Soviet perspective, but especially from the latter.

What disturbs me a little is that there is almost no mention at all of Romanian units. Also, he seems not to have researched any romanian archives for this book.

I received it, but didn't actually had the time to read it. Do not expect to find to much info on the Romanians, except for what was drawn from Soviet archives and German secondary sources.

I also received the book several days ago.

I agree with Victor, not much details on Rumanian forces (even less on the air war); however, it appears a thorough work, worth of reading.

I just bought the book here and was the only one left at the store. I'm finding it useful in the locations and the units involved. Making notes to look at the maps of the area I have. Though it doesn't mention alot about Romanian forces can still figure it out by the other resources available.

It's about the first campain ( Bessarabia) with almost 500 pages. An impressive work about Bomber groups activity.

No I don't know. :(

Mr Stoian book can be ordered from author himself (I can give you his home adress and tel.nr)
As for the second book I have only the adress of one of the authors.

I'm sure many of you own or have read the book "Romania in World War II" by Dinu Giurescu.
I haven't been able to find it until now, but have just seen it for sale on amazon.com, albeit for a fairly hefty price ($50).

For those who have read it, would you recommend buying it? Is it worth reading or keeping as a reference, or is it just another overview rehash of well-known facts?

I'd appreciate your recommendation. Thanks.

P.S. One more question: Has anyone seen General Mihail's memoirs for sale at any new or used-bookstore?

I have it. Not much use as in terms of military info, but very good on political and social aspects. If you would run a search, you would see I used as reference many times to reply on the forum.
