DOCUMENT VLADIMIR SOCOR (New York, U.S.A.) YESHAYAHU JELINEK (Philadelphia, U.S.A.) compilers, translators, and editors Polish Diplomatic Reports on the Political Crisis in Romania, September 1940 The Iron Guard's advent to power in September, 1940, remains one of the least documented chapters in the modem political history of Romania and in the history of Europe's major radical right-wing movements. Although the Iron Guard has been described as "the most original, spectacular, and success- ful of the interwar fascist movements in Eastern Europe,"i study of this movement is handicapped by the general unavailability of internal primary sources-especially concerning the Iron Guard's rise and rule from mid-1940 to early 1941. However, Polish diplomatic reports2 sent from Bucharest to London by Poland's ambassador to Romania, Count Roger Raczynski, provide a well-informed, firsthand account of the circumstances surrounding the Guard's accession to power.3 1.
