Autori: Ioachim Lazăr, Ioan Octavian Rudeanu
The neutrality period from the 1st of July and 15th/28th of August 1916 and the beginning of the campaign for the freeing of Transylvania is depicted by the artillery junior lieutenant Ghinea, from the Moldavian village of Cârlomăneşti.
The junior lieutenant Ghinea was the deputy commander of the III rd Battery, 1st Division, from the 24 Regiment of Artillery. These units and sub-units were part of the IVth Army or The North Army, leaded by General Prezan. In his diary, the junior lieutenant Ghinea describes the state of mind of the soldiers and officers, prior to going into the war and then their enthusiasm at the crossing of the border. The main part of the diary is written in the little town of Topliţa, up to where its artillery sub-unit advanced. The diary is a valuable contribution to the knowledge of facts and events from the First World War.
