YUGOSLAVIA IN WORLD WAR II (1941-45)


The Axis invasion caused panic in Yugoslavia, as foreign occupiers partitioned the country and terrorized its people. Bloody encounters involved both invading and domestic forces throughout the four years of war. The Communist-led Partisans rose from near oblivion to dominate the country's resistance movement. They emerged from the war in firm control of the entire country.
