    Standard MAA layout; pages of text with accompanying photos, and a set of 8 colour plates centrally located. What is odd about this book is that the captions to the colour plates take up more than half the text. This is an unusual variant on the layout of most MAA books. The text is divided into sections - an Introduction, a piece on The Army and the State which gives a nice description of the organization of the military, Equipment, which focuses primarily on tanks but also on small arms, Unit O Standard MAA layout; pages of text with accompanying photos, and a set of 8 colour plates centrally located. What is odd about this book is that the captions to the colour plates take up more than half the text. This is an unusual variant on the layout of most MAA books. The text is divided into sections - an Introduction, a piece on The Army and the State which gives a nice description of the organization of the military, Equipment, which focuses primarily on tanks but also on small arms, Unit Organisation(sic) which describes the different kinds of divisions and also has a nice sidebar indicating which regiments were formed into which divisions, Campaigns 1941-1945, with a brief history of the employment of the Romanian Army, with nicely done maps, and then the plates. The plates focus mainly on details of equipment, uniforms and insignia, hence the absence of this discussion from the main text, however, the captions are so detailed they may be considered an extension of the text. Plates cover the gamut from high command, to general staff officers, field officers, NCOs and men. Disappointingly, the subject of rank insignia, or duties and responsibilities associated with the various ranks, is not addressed. Another volume in the MAA titles does cover rank insignia in detail - MAA 131 Germany's Eastern Front Allies and I would recommend that title be read in conjunction with this one, for those interested in a fuller understanding of the rank system. Otherwise, a fairly complete initial look at the Romanian Army is provided, and some details of rank can be deduced from context clues in the plate captions. Plates themselves are well done by a Romanian artist, and seem almost identical to Volstad's style, not a bad thing. Faces are a bit unevenly done, but details of uniform and insignia are clear, with borders well defined by black lines. Good array of poses and mix of subjects. Rated down for lack of rank insignia information. Those not interested in that facet may rate this a 5 with regards to order of battle and historical info.

    A flawless introductory account to one of the forgotten armies of World War II, which suffered immensely in the conflict. Romania was stuck between the German rock and the Soviet hard place. Hard to see them coming out of the war in good shape.
