Josip Broz, commonly known as Tito, was a Yugoslav communist revolutionary politician serving in various positions from 1943 until his death on May 4, in 1980 (b. 1892). During World War II, he was the leader of the Yugoslav Partisans, often regarded as the most effective resistance movement in German-occupied Europe. He also served as the president of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 14 January 1953 until his death.
