Croatia became an independent country after the German invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941. Croatia declared its independence and became an Axis ally fielding military units to fight on the Russian front.
The new country first overprinted existing stocks of Yugoslavia stamps with its national symbols, then printed an aray of well-designed stamps with alternating labels showing flags, crests and slogans. These combinations, combined with their national and wartime themes, make Croatian stamps exciting to collect. The Soviet army, aided by anti-fascist Yugoslav partisans, took over Croatia by the end of 1944.
