  Yugoslavia's End, by Nebojsa Malic

Yugoslavia was thus organized into Soviet-style 'republics' with no more sovereignty or legitimacy than their USSR counterparts.
From its very inception, Yugoslavia had been a flawed creation, a grandiose experiment in both nation-building and social engineering, doomed to failure by simple truths of history and human nature.

 STATISTICS OF YUGOSLAVIA'S GENOCIDE AND MASS MURDER
Numerous estimates of this are available in the sources and I organize and consolidate them into military dead (lines 4 to 9 in Table 9.1), Partisan dead (lines 12 to 13), civilian dead (lines 23 to 26), civil war-dead (lines 30 to 31) and total war-dead (lines 34 to 48).
The total democide of all parties in Yugoslavia turns out to be 1,515,000 to 4,805,000 people, of which 1,230,000 to 3,425,000 of them were killed during the war (lines 287 and 288).
These now enable Yugoslavia's population to be projected to 1950 and 1965 based on the 1941 population, and by subtracting these projections from the actual population estimates (lines 311 and 317) to determine the population deficits used previously (lines 327 and 328).
