Helo all,

I was wondering when did Romania officialy declared war on England. It's November 23, 1940, the official date of the entry of Romania into the Axis Pact the date ?

Thanks :D

After an ultimatum addressed to Romania on November 30th 1941, in which the UK was demanding Romania to stop the hostilities against the USSR until 5 December, marshal Antonescu answered that Romania "was engaged in a war for the defense of her integrity, provoqued by the Soviet agression of 1940". On December 7th 1941, Romania declared war on England.

Best regards,

On 7 December 1941, England declared war on Romania, not vice versa!

Romanian answer to the British ultimatum has been published on the site:
