COMMANDER VICTOR (NIȚĂ) VOINESCU- FROM A HERO TO AN AMERICAN AGENT

Florian BICHIR

Abstract


One of the greatest figures of the Romanian Royal Navy was the commander Victor (Niţă) Voinescu. First commander of the "DELFIN" submarine, Commander Voinescu was both a moral and a professional reference for generations of navy officers. By this article, we bring him a tribute, regretting that his name is unfortunately omitted from the monumental work "The Romanian Army in the Second World War 1941-1945" . Commander Voinescu deserves our gratitude even more since, after the installation of the communist regime, the intelligence services constantly investigated him for his "reactionary" attitude, as you will see in a document of Security that we publish for the first time. The life of the legendary commander Voinescu should be examined by military historians in detail, because the Romanian Navy has what to be proud of.
