Summary/Abstract: On April 1941, the Independent State of Croatia was established under the rule of the Poglavnik Ante Pavelić, leader of the Ustasha ultra-nationalist and separatist movement. The State was formally included in the Italian sphere of interest, but de facto it was divided between the German and Italian military occupation forces and Italy exercised a significant influence only in the part of the State directly occupied by the troops of the Italian 2nd Army. The Historical Archive of the Italian Army General Staff provides a valuable record of the events and allows a detailed analysis.
