NotesRepublished in David Low, Europe at War, (Penguin Books, 1941). Printed on opposite page: "Stalin was restless about the rapid drift to Nazism in Rumania, for the U.S.S.R. was vulnerable in her southern territories and he didn't like Nazi movements near his Black Sea. Just to show he was no mere onlooker, Stalin got in early and snatched from Rumania the ex-Russian provinces of Bessarabia and North Bukovina." p.96.
