I'm just after viewing a documentary on the Yougoslavian film industry which prospered when he was in power, he was quite a film buff. Indeed there was a film made starring Richard Burton as him and approved by him - "Sutjeska" about the WW2 battle, where Tito was wounded. Had he died there, the course of Balkan history would probably have turned out differently! Tito, a Croat with a Slovenian mother seemed to have an incredible ability to play the various Yougoslav nationalities off each other, a true genius! Yougoslavia seems to have been a vastly freer communist state than any of the others! yes I know, the Yougoslav secret service murdered a few 'enemies of the state' in West Germany, but by and large it seemed a vastly more sane country than the other communist darling of the West, Romania! I have heard the USA contributed considerable funds to assist its economy as it was seen as a bullwork against Soviet expansion. There is little doubt that had The USSR/Warsaw Pact got involved in messing there, it would have been resisted as the Nazis were!
So what do ye make of Marshall Josip Broz Tito?
