Description

After seizing power, the Romanian Communist Party formed new, ideologically committed cadres that were loyal only to the regime. Consulting official documents, chronologies, dairies, memoirs, and confessions, Florin Sperlea builds a comprehensive history of Romania's "popular military," comparing it to similar entities within Europe's "democratic-popular" states.
