The Independent State of Croatia (Nezavisna Država Hrvatska; NDH) was established on April 10, 1941, after the Kingdom of Yugoslavia was attacked by the Axis forces. It was technically a monarchy and Italian protectorate, but the state was controlled by the governing fascist Ustaše movement.
The NDH founded the Croatian Home Guard (Croatian: Hrvatsko domobranstvo) in April 1941 with the consent of the Wehrmacht. The Home Guard had an air force and a minimal navy. The NDH also created the Ustaška Vojnica, which was conceived as an elite militia.
