If I remember well enough, the germans had to make sure romanians and hungarians weren't on the same part of the front because they would start fighting each other.
Yes. Hitler had poor opinion of both armies, especially Hungarians. He blamed both Hungarians and Romanians for failures on the Eastern front. I'm not sure, but I think the Soviets breached through Romanian positions in the Battle of Stalingrad.

... this was new information for me and now i am wondering now why your WWII politicians chose axis side. It looks like they were pressed to give up of your land by Germany in order to appease or convince your neighbors to join the axis /craiova treaty/. The question is what you got in return? Reading in the moment that Stalin (!) returned northern transylvania to you after the end of WWII.
