Partisan leaders who built and ran Yugoslavia over a half century Unlike the aristocrats who ran many other countries, Tito came from the humblest of origins, growing up in bitter rural poverty He rose through the ranks of the Yugoslav Communist Party during its underground phase in WWI and emerged as a leader during the next great war He was the only commander in chief of any WWII army to be injured during the conflict, narrowly escaping death several times Tito started his life in an overcrowded hut wearing cow dung shoes for warmth and ended as one of the most powerful and admired of world leaders Even an academic biography of such a person can t help but be remarkable.Tito s hard life was reflected in the hard way that he led his country There were purges, executions, a notorious prison camp at Goli Otok and ruthless intrigue within his inner circle He had the poor person s intense fascination with material goods and luxury, an appetite that remained unsated throughout his decades in power, Despite all this, he was not a tyrant Yugoslavia became a developed country under his watch even an esteemed one Yugoslavs could travel the world freely and compare their standard of living to others They could consume media from wherever they chose and did not need to be bludgeoned to maintain order Yugoslav Communism repressed dissent, but it also repressed the demon of ethnonationalism After Tito died his old Chetnik and Usta e enemies from WWII sprang back to life and destroyed Yugoslavia forever To this day many mourn the lost unity that Tito s country embodied, for all its flaws This book rekindled some of my latent sympathies for the Communists of the 20th century, many of whom were genuinely heroic and admirable regardless of the ultimate shortcomings of their system Kardelj, Djilas, Rankovic, Popovic and Tito s other comrades are all depicted here with their various strengths and flaws Yugoslavia did well economically, but it was also the beneficiary of generous aid and loans from both the Soviets and the West For decades Tito managed to balance the two camps against one another It often seemed like this was by chance rather than calculation he had genuine falling outs and rapprochements with both sides at different times He helped build the Non Aligned movement and made Yugoslavia one of the most strategically important countries in the world Tito genuinely supported Third World liberation movements and made his country a valued interlocutor to many different parties Yugoslavia was not a huge country, but it punched well above its weight in terms of influence The same overachieving dynamic at play during WWII when Tito s Partisans emerged as an internationally respected military force carried over into decades of skillful peacetime diplomacy Tito s Partisans were the extremely rare resistance movement that was also capable of governing upon victory Quite an accomplishment for someone of such inauspicious origins.There are some people I ve met in my life, in places like Kurdistan, Egypt and Bosnia, who I would describe as unkillable They are people who have come to the brink of violent death so many times shot, blown up, battered that they are no longer intimidated by it Their experiences have given them a steeliness and self assurance that you simply cannot find in the average person From these pages, I gathered that Tito was a person like this The book starts, somewhat curiously, with a lengthy description of his eyes They were the eyes of someone who grew up around a lot of death, relentlessly fighting until he rose to a point where no further increase was possible It took people like that to create a country like Yugoslavia It was destroyed later on by those who were lesser This is not only a definitive biography of Tito but a fine study of Yugoslavia up to his death I studied Eastern Europe and the Balkans as a graduate student in political science, so I was excited to learn so muchdetail in this book It is written in a style that should be accessible to most people who enjoy reading about history Josef Broz Tito was unique He alone defied Stalin for many years and survived despite many assassination attempts, a number of them surely initiated by Stal This is not only a definitive biography of Tito but a fine study of Yugoslavia up to his death I studied Eastern Europe and the Balkans as a graduate student in political science, so I was excited to learn so muchdetail in this book It is written in a style that should be accessible to most people who enjoy reading about history Josef Broz Tito was unique He alone defied Stalin for many years and survived despite many assassination attempts, a number of them surely initiated by Stalin Tito was also targeted for assassination by Hitler Tito organized against the Nazis before the Hitler Stalin Nonaggression Pact and was infuriated by it Even when the Soviet Union entered the war after Germany attacked it, it failed to arm Yugoslav partisans as Tito had expected So Tito went to the British for arms Yugoslavia was the only country in Eastern Europe and the Balkans that didto liberate itself than the Soviet Union did to liberate it Consequently, Tito was able to maneuver to keep his country mostly independent from the Soviet Union This book tells how he managed that, and continued to manage that for the next thirty years, although the Soviets were always secretly ready to invade if there was an opportunity Tito was the originator of the non aligned movement of nations that declared themselves independent of the West and the Soviet bloc He did a great deal to help revolutionaries in Africa and Asia Nevertheless, he received a great deal of aid from the United States and other western countries because of his independence from the Soviet Union But Tito was a strongman In the aftermath of World War II, he killed many Croats and Serbs who had collaborated with the Nazis or opposed his rule, and many who had not Yugoslavia was in some ways a proponent of aliberal version of Communism, but Tito constantly veered between favoring liberals and favoringtraditional Communists He believed that maintaining strong central control was necessary to keep the various nationalities from breaking off, and he was probably correct in that He was Croatian, but many of his policies disfavored the Croats and the Slovenes, who weredeveloped, and sent revenue from their parts of the country to poorer areas, especially to the Serbs, whom he feared But many Serbs resented him because of his purges This book focuses almost entirely on Tito s political life, but towards the end it has revealing details about his five marriages, especially about his last wife, Jovanka Jovanka loved luxury and control She apparently hoped to be his successor She was young and strong, and he was old and weak He confided to his colleagues that at night he hid in the bathroom to avoid her, so they sent her off to a sanatorium The couple was separated after that, though Tito refused to divorce her The thought of the old man who controlled a country being perhaps an abused spouse is poignant Of course, Yugoslavia fell apart after he died Could he have managed it better and prevented that That is far from certain Izjemno delo Prvic marsikaj novega iz moskovskih in zahodnih arhivov, drugic zelo lepo berljiv stil, ki znanstveno delo priblizuje literaturi.
