Hi!

Could someone please tell me whether General Constantin Niculescu, commander of the 5th Army Corps from 20 March 1943 - 18 September 1944 is the same person as General Constantin Nicolaescu, Minister of War from 4 July 1940 - 6 September 1940.

Many thanks in advance,

VJK

Actually, the 5th Corps commander was called Constantin Nicolescu. Before being named in this position he was the commander of the Bucharest military district, since spring of 1941. I do not know what position he held before that, but I suspect they are one and the same person.

Many thanks for that Victor! I got the spelling Niculescu from this very site, hence my confusion about the 3 different versions. Not knowing the subtleties of the Romanian language, is it common practice that the surname Nicolescu could also be spelt Nicolaescu. I ask, because the official site of the Romanian Ministry of National Defence (http://www.mapn.ro/indexro.php) gives the spelling of the Mninster of War as Nicolaescu.

Regards,

VJK
