About this title


In this book, author and historian Ann Lane studies Britain’s role in the emergence of Marshal Josip Broz Tito’s Yugoslavia, from the German invasion of 1941 until the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950. Former Yugoslavia was, in many respects, a microcosm of the complexities of cold war politics in Europe, and this book shares how by 1950 it had emerged as an anomalous communist state detached from the Soviet bloc, economically dependent on the West and militarily dependent on NATO, yet diplomatically defiant of formal alliance entanglements. These contradictions were the very essence of cold war politics and this work shows, given Yugoslavia’s geo-strategic importance, this country came to enjoy an important place as a political actor for the Cold War’s duration. Drawing on newly available documentary material from the archives of the UK, the United States, and the countries of the former Soviet bloc, Ann Lane explores Britain’s entanglements with Yugoslavia’s civil war and the way in which this experience shaped British thinking about the onset of the Cold War in Europe.

From the Back Cover:

This book sets out to examine the policy of the British Foreign Office towards Yugoslavia and the Tito Government during this important period. Pivotal to this policy was the relationship between Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union, and its effects on Soviet-Western relations in general. Foreign Office policy towards Yugoslavia is also explored in the context of Anglo-Yugoslav relations, and the degree to which Britain's need for American financial support, as well as American commitment to the reconstruction of Western Europe, limited Britain's freedom of action.
