Romania’S Economic Arguments Regarding The Shortness Of The Second World War

    () (“DANUBIUS” University of Galati)


Romania's contribution to the cause of the United Nations would be significant, leading to shortness of the war with about 200 days and giving them significant strategic, material and human advantage. Despite the fact that Romania’s economic war effort was figured at the enormous amount of 1,200,000,000 dollars, foreign currency in 1938, this would assure the country an honorable place four in the hierarchy of the United Nations which led the fight against Germany the cobeligeranta status, truly deserved by the state would be refused because of political considerations known only by Great Powers. Among all the states in a situation somehow similar to that of Romania, none made such a huge military and economic effort in defeating the Nazi war machine.
