Tito (Josip Broz)

(1892-1980) Yugoslavian leader. General secretary of the Communist Party from 1937, he led communist partisans in World War II and defeated the rival Chetniks as well as the Germans. After World War II Tito refused to allow Yugoslavia to become a Soviet satellite. He broke decisively with Moscow in 1948. His rule gave the country a unity it had previously lacked, but it did not last long after his death.
