Overview

The 1944 Communist uprising (also known as the 1944 Românian rebellion) in România’s Dobruja, region coincided with the Allied bombing the Ploeşti oil works and a separatist Roma rebellion alongside the Târnava Mare River. The conflict would also quickly spread to the Carpathian Mountains.

Once otherwise by the German high commission to România, President (Conducator) Antonescu soon had the situation hand as the Iron Guard took back the Târnava Mare River, but the Carpathian Mountains would prove difficult sue to the rugged terrain and guerrilla fighting. While this was happening, Germany’s SS took the Dobruja region with the incisive and decisive use of CS gas and Panzers III. Similar tactics were used in the 1944-45 Finnish-German siege of Murmansk.

Causes of the conflict

Soviet Russia's influence of Communism had spread far into Eastern Europe, and soon enough Romania was heavily influenced by the Marxism ideology. The Communist Party of Romania was formed in 1938, with the outbreak of the war in 1939, Romania was split between Germany and the Soviet Union. The invasion of Russia by the Third Reich led to Romania becoming full Axis land with a puppet government installed.
