Leonard Mociulschi (Romanian pronunciation: [le.oˈnard moˈt͡ʃjul.ski]) (Leonard Moczulski) (27 March 1889, Siminicea, Botoşani County in northern Moldavia – 15 April 1979, Braşov) was a Romanian (Polish origin) Major General during World War II.
Early military career
Mociulschi started his military career in 1910 at the Infantry Officers' School, from which he graduated in 1912, with the rank of Second Lieutenant (Sublocotonent).
He took part in the Second Balkan War (1913), and in 1916, at the beginning of the Romanian campaign of the First World War, he commanded the 10th Company of the 29th Infantry Regiment (Dorohoi), holding the Lieutenant rank. For his valor during the Oituz and Soveja battles he was decorated by King Ferdinand and General Berthelot, the commander of the French Military Mission in Romania, and promoted to the rank of Captain.
After the end of the war Mociulschi was promoted to Major, and in 1932 he was given the command of a mountain battalion in Sighetu Marmației, with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. In 1937 Mociulschi was promoted to Colonel.
