|The Independent State of Croatia (Nezavisna Drzava Hrvatska - NDH) was a world war II puppet state of Nazi Germany, established on
a part of Axis-occupied Yugoslavia. The NDH was founded on April 10, 1941 after the invasion of Yugoslavia by the Axis powers.
The state was technically a monarchy and Italian protectorate but the king-designate, the prince Aimone di Savoia - Aosta, refused to
assume the kingship in opposition to the Italian annexation of the Yugoslav region of Dalmatia. The state was actually controlled by the
governing Ustase movement and its Poglavnik, Ante Pavelic.
By early 1945, the NDH army withdrew towards Zagreb with German troops, and continued fighting for a week after the German
surrender on May 9, 1945. They were soon overpowered and the NDH effectively ceased to exists in May 1945.
