Pro-Nazi Government Overthrown in Yugoslavia

In Yugoslavia, a coup overthrows the fascist, pro-Nazi government. Prince Paul signed the Tripartite Treaty just two days ago and this led to his senior military officials launching the coup.

General Du an Simovi takes control of the government, exiles Prince Paul, and gets rid of Nazi representatives. In response, Adolf Hitler will launch an invasion in a few days.
