Hrvatski Domobran

Map of a Greater Croatia in a 1939 article of the Ustase Hrvatski Domobran newspaper associated with the organization of the same name that sought recruitment of Croat emigres in Argentina and other countries. This article rejects the Cvetković–Maček Agreement and the borders that it provided to Croatia as insufficient.

Hrvatski Domobran (Croatian Home Defenders) was a Croat political organization that advocated independence for Croatia from Yugoslavia, and became associated with the Ustaše.[1] It was founded in 1928 and took part in demonstrations in Zagreb in which it engaged in violent battles with police.[2] After being shut down and forced to flee with the establishment of royal dictatorship in Yugoslavia, it was refounded as an émigré organization in 1933 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.[3] A section was established in the United States to raise support for the Ustaše.[4]
