This material captures the politico-military relations between Romania and Italy during the period 1941–1943, a brief presentation of the Romanian diplomacy at that time.
Pendulating between the hypothesis of creating a barrier against Russian Slavism through a union with Italy and the fall of the fascist dictatorship, the Romanian-Italian relations bore the stamp of those troubled times, when mutual distrust and pursuit of one’s own interests were obvious.
With immeasurable losses, Romania, allied with Germany until 23 August 1944, continued the total war, this time against the former ally – Germany.
