"Following the March 1941 coup d'etat and the new Yugoslav government's refusal to ratify the Tripartite Pact, Germany led an axis invasion of Yugolslavia. Hitler blamed Serbia and the Serbs as the main culprits in the coup. In reprisal, the German military made Serbia into a rump condominium, exploiting it as a strategic base, and as a source of raw materials and cheap labor.
