’Tis one thing to read about Corneliu Zelea Codreanu and his Legion of Michael the Archangel (Legiunea Arhanghelul Mihail), also known as the Iron Guard. Quite another to see them! Their every movement emanates the strength of men who know they fight for the soul of their people. It is a curse that the country’s worst elements were perfidious cowards from the top down; yet even after Codreanu’s death by royal murder—even years later, after Romania was Bolshevized!—the cadres he forged from the best of his national kin remained strong. They defied unspeakable torture, and ultimately laid down their lives as some of the bravest examples resistance to evil in a century washed with the blood of innocents, strewn over with the bones of heroes, and buried in the ashes of martyrs.
