Background: The lands that today comprise Croatia were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the close of World War I. In 1918 , the Croats , Serbs , and Slovenes formed a kingdom known after 1929 as Yugoslavia. Following World War II , Yugoslavia became a federal independent Communist state under the strong hand of Marshal TITO. Although Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991 , it took four years of sporadic , but often bitter , fighting before occupying Serb armies were mostly cleared from Croatian lands. Under UN supervision , the last Serb-held enclave in eastern Slavonia was returned to Croatia in 1998.
