General Nicolae Rădescu: New Sources, New Perspectives, 1940s–1950s
History and Philosophy
In this article, I share the story of General Nicolae Rădescu (1877–1953), a desolate, rebellious, rigid yet highly spiritual man trapped in a dramatic life, moving between political statesmanship and mystical illusions, tragedy and heroism, loyalty and betrayal. A highly decorated general, former prime minster of Romania, and chief of general staff during the last years of the Second World War, the leader of the Romanian opposition who ended up in exile, banished from political life. He died on ‘other shores’, alone, and in poverty.
