Croatia Under Ante Pavelic: America, Ustase & Croatian Genocide in WWII199,00 kn
Ante Pavelic was the leader of the fascist party of Croatia (the Ustase), who, on Adolf Hitler`s instruction, became the leader of Croatia after the Nazi invasion of 1941. Pavelic 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 Pavelic 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 Drawing on previously unpublished documents, Robert McCormick argues that President Harry S. Truman`s Cold War priorities meant that Pavelic was never made to answer for his crimes. Today, the Ustase remains difficult legacy within Croatian society, partly as a result of Pavelic` 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.
