Abstract This essay addresses the place of the NDH state within fascist Europe. It treats such issues as its relationship to generic fascism, the comparative degree of mobilisation, the relationship to religion, the place of the NDH state in the history of mass atrocity, its definition as a ‘regime type’, its role within the spectrum of revolutionary civil war, and its relationship to the issue of Balkan fascism.
