In 1918, the Croats, Serbs, and Slovenes formed a kingdom known after 1929 as
Yugoslavia. Following World War II, Yugoslavia became an independent communist
state under the strong hand of Marshal TITO. Although Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, it took four

mostly cleared from Croatian lands.
Under UN supervision the last Serb-held enclave in eastern Slavonia was returned
to Croatia in 1998.
