Product description


'Wars seldom end neatly and without unexpected consequences. This was certainly true of World War II. Europe, where the war began, soon was divided by Cold War ideology. From a region of Europe of limited diplomatic interest to the United States, the Balkans after the war becae part of the front line of the West's anti-communist crusade. The heart of this work is the intersection of ethnic politics in a small state with the international and domestic political interests of a great power. The work focuses on the affairs of a notorious political extremist in Yugoslavia and a multinational state created only at the end of World War I. It provides a detailed and vivid account that weaves local Yugoslav politics with the interests of the United States in a thought-provoking narrative of ""real"" state power versus the ideals of human justice.' Gerasimos Augustinos, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Souh Carolina.

Product Description

Ante Pavelic was the leader of the fascist party of Croatia (the Ustaše), who, on Adolf Hitler’s instruction, became the leader of Croatia after the Nazi invasion of 1941. Paveli? was an extreme Croatian nationalist who believed that the Serbian people were an inferior race - he would preside over a genocide that ultimately killed an estimated 390,000 Serbs during World War II. Croatia under Ante Paveli? provides the full history of this period, with a special focus on the United States’ role in the post-war settlement. Drawing on previously unpublished documents, Robert McCormick argues that President Harry S. Truman’s Cold War priorities meant that Paveli? was never made to answer for his crimes. Today, the Ustaše remains difficult legacy within Croatian society, partly as a result of Paveli?’ political life in exile in South America. This is a new account of US foreign policy towards one of the Second World War’s most brutal dictators and is an essential contribution to Croatian war-time history.
