The end of the First World War and the Great Union has not stopped conflicts within the Romanian society. In fact, the entire Europe was surrounded by a myriad of tensions and violent manifestations that culminated with the outburst of the Second World War. For Romanians, the accomplishment of the great dream of uniting all the regions with the majority of Romanian population seemed to open Pandora’s box, with all the violence, threats, accusations, crimes and general discontent. People plunged into endless disputes that weakened and crumbled the already fragile Romanian society. The case of the deputee Ioan Zelea Codreanu and senator Constantin Dinescu is representative for that period and reflects the force of the expressed ideas, frustrations, passions, convictions of those who survived the war. Thus, in this article, we intend to present the dispute between the two aforementioned personalities, politicians and veterans of the Great War, who were in the centre of public opinion and press. At the same time, the investigation of the authorities in 1921, after the public acusations of the two, offers a detailed perspective on some events during the war.
