Please try again later. Romania under Communism was no less tragic than Romania under Fascism. One ventures into such subject matter knowing ahead of time that the information is going to be unpleasant. That they were vain and megalomaniacal, I have no doubt. He couldn’t have done so without a measure of intelligence and political savvy or without being propped up by collaborators.

In holding the positions paepa purports to have had, Pacepa must have done his share of the type of fawning he describes his colleagues doing. As head of the DIE, his hands had to have gotten dirty accomplishing the deeds Ceausescu demanded.


I pacea deeper revelations of the actual oppression prison conditions, numbers executed, etc.

Lastly, though there are numerous references to Jews, Germans, and Hungarians in Romania and Ceausescu’s dislike and exploitation of them, I find it telling that there is only one passing reference to Gypsies, and that in the form of an adjective where a government official is describes as “a Gypsy looking fellow.

One person found this helpful. A first hand account of the inside workings of communist Romania. The stories are horrific and gives some inside information on how the communist government kept control over the people. My only beef with this is that the author comes out as an impartial observer in all of this.

Red Horizons : The True Story of Nicolae and Elena Ceausescus’ Crimes, Lifestyle, and Corruption

You don’t get to be the head of a foreign intelligence agency by not participating in the acts he was writing about. An absorbing account of the Ceausescu’s, written from the perspective of someone who was close enough to know the real Nicolae and his wife.

It is not just a biography. It is told as a story should be, with emotion, grabbing my interest. The international alliances, such as Nicolae’s relationship with Yasser Arafat, give the story an international perspective, that I never considered.

As a son of a Romanian father with many family members having come from Romania to the United States, I have always known only what I was told by my family. This book helps to clear mhiai many things which were unanswered.

My uncle, a Colonel in the Romanian army, was a “food” engineer and worked on food research. When he attended military schooling for officers, his friend fellow officer was Ceasescu himself. My uncle told me little about him, but he did say that in his early years as an officer, Ceasescu was not so extreme or weird.

In this book, the author, Pacepa, mentions that Ceasescu force Jews and Germans to pay for their “freedom” from Romania. I can attest to that as being very true. Also, the author mentions that bribery was a common practice to get people to do things for you. My father used to load up on “Kent” cigarettes and other American items including cash with which to buy the freedom of members of my family. One thing my family told me which always stuck in my mind was that in Romania, in the 60s and 70s, you never saw litter on the streets.

They described immaculate streets with no trash to be seen anywhere.

They made it a point to mention that because of their shock at seeing filthy streets in Chicago. I asked them why the streets were able to be maintained so clean in Romania, and they said you can get into “big trouble” if you are caught littering. Reading this book makes me ask questions about what happened after Pacepa’s defection, both to him and to Romania, and it helps me to understand more about what my family had been through.

I realize that the author can omit things or American Intelligence might have censored some of the book, but what I have read has both shocked me and helped me to understand. Two things, among many, which shocked me were first, I think Ceasescu was in his own way very brilliant to concoct this scheme called operation “Horizon” and other schemes as well. Scondly, I was shocked by both his and his wife’s viciousness on the one hand, and her, Elena, fixation on her sexual appetite.

This book and Disinformation should be required reading. Of course most of the teachers in today’s schools would burn these books. What’s sad about that that speaks volumes is they are one of the many who are duped in to believing this lie that has been sold to them.

Read these books and prepare to have your eyes opened!

The worst is thinking, rather knowing some of my children have bought into the lies the current administration has sold them. See all 63 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
