The Kingdom of Yugoslavia was the former alliance of six BalkanStates: Croatia-Herzegovina, Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republicof Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia and S…lovenia. The WWIIinvasion by Germany, the post war occupation by the USSR, internalconflict and sectarian violence resulted in the total dissolutionof the country into its former states and the new autonomousprovinces of Vojvodina, Kosovo and Metohija. The Balkans has longbeen seen as a powder keg in European stability. This answer is wrong at several points: 1. Kingdom of Yugoslavia was not an alliance of states, it was acentralized country, ruled by a king in Belgrade. Before 1918 whatare today Slovenia and Croatia were a part of Austro-Hungarianempire, not independent states. 2. In World War II Yugoslavia was divided by Germany, Italy,Hungary and I believe (not sure) Bulgaria, while Croatia was anindependent state, under strong German influence. 3. Yugoslavia was not occupied by the USSR after the war. Themajority of the country was liberated by local partisans, led byJosip Broz - Tito. It was autonomous under the rule of Tito'scommunist regime. In 1948 Tito had a famous fall-out with Stalinand Yugoslavia became an "outlaw" of the communist states, having alot more links with the west as the other communist countries. Itwas never a member of the Warsaw pact, instead Tito created anorganisation of "non-aligned states", mostly third world countriesthat refused to take either side in the cold war. 4. Today Yugoslavia is separated into 6 countries, Slovenia,Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and the FormerYugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). (MORE)
