By the way, as an exercise to develop your Wikipedia talents, may I suggest that you work on an article that you don't have any personal connection to? Instead of Sibiu, why not try to improve, say, Montpellier. I see that its History section has no footnotes at all -- can you help improve that? And maybe find cases where the current text can be improved? --Macrakis (talk) 18:12, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey, Macrakis.
Thanks for the welcoming message. I have actually already done some edits on pages I have no personal connection to and I'm planning to do so in the future too, whenever I find something I can improve. My current plan is to finish the improvements I have started on the Sibiu page, after that I'll see what I will focus on. And as a side note: The Montpellier example you gave me actually does have some footnotes on its History section. :) Lupishor (talk) 19:11, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Talk:World War II : Romania's Ion Antonescu to "Main Axis Leaders" in the infobox[edit]

Out of curiosity as to exactly what Prof Deletant's current views are on Antonescu's leadership position in WW2, I dropped him a line to ask as follows [extract from e-mail]:

I note that in "Joining Hitler's Crusade" you make the point "All of this places Romania on a par with Italy as a principal ally of Germany and not in the category of a minor Axis satellite." (p. 78). ("this", I take to be in simplistic terms, 585,000 troops, about a third of Germany's oil supplies, and the respect of Hitler.)

I was wondering if you have put this view forward anywhere else, perhaps argued more fully?

My interest is whether the idea challenges the accepted view of Italy as the second partner of the Axis in the European part of WW2.

I included the point made on the article discussion page about Italy initiating some strategic actions in WW2 (e.g. invasion of Greece) and the role of the Italian navy in tying down extensive British naval resource, with possible implications for naval activity in the Far East.

The answer I got is as follows [extract from e-mail]:

Thank you for your email. My intention in highlighting Romania's role as a partner of Nazi Germany was to place more significance than is usually given to the former's contribution to Hitler's designs. It was not to diminish the greater importance of Italy which you rightly underline in your comments. Perhaps I should have said that 'this places Romania in the same league as Italy....' and not equate her role with that of Italy. Best wishes,...

So, this slight restating of Prof Deletant's position seems to be a better fit with the understanding that I and others have of the literature. What he is looking for is a raised understanding of the role of Rommania in WW2, not a claim of equal importance with Italy. Since this restatement will no doubt have been made formally and informally to other historians in the academic community, this explains why we have not seen other academic historians make the original, unmodified point as in Joining Hitler's Crusade.

Obviously, any point about private correspondence not being a WP:RS is entirely correct. I was simply trying to understand the position that we could see from sources.

I am making this point here on your talk page, as I feel it is not right to quote private correspondence on a (more visible) article talk page. However, @Nick-D: and @Paul Siebert: may be interested to see this.

@ThoughtIdRetired: Thank you for contacting him. Well, then I guess the Deletant source falls apart from sources backing up my intention to add Romania. Since Axworthy alone is obviously not enough to make my intention a possibility, I guess that for now, Romania can't be added, unless others join the discussion and provide more material supporting my claim. But thanks very much for taking this matter seriously. :)

@ThoughtIdRetired: I've contacted Mr Deletant myself and asked what he thinks of Romania's importance compared to that of Italy and whether he thinks Antonescu was one of the main Axis leaders. Here's his answer (extract from email):

In terms of the WW2 theatres in which Italy and Romania fought, the manpower they each deployed, the land, sea and air forces they committed, I regard Italy to have been a more significant ally of Nazi Germany. My view is not in any way designed to play down the significance of Romania's role as an ally of Nazi Germany.

We could indeed regard Romania as the second Axis power in the European theatre after the withdrawal of Italy from the war.

Antonescu was one of the principal Axis leaders. Hitler held him in great respect since he had served as a strategist with the rank of colonel in WW1 in the Romanian army (Hitler was a corporal).

Best wishes,[...]

So, according to him, Antonescu could, indeed, be added to the "Main Axis Leaders" section. He also considers Romania Europe's second Axis member after Italy's surrender. I will send him another email to ask whether he thinks these views should also be accepted by other historians. Lupishor (talk) 11:25, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
