Leon Kuss, district director of Krainburg, embodied the type of social climber of the NSDAP as a career springboard served. The Military Tribunal in 1947 Ljubljana presented Kuss various war crimes and crimes against humanity (denationalization and expulsion of the Slovenian population, forced mobilization of the Slovenes and the use of the Slovenian population for forced labor) to load.The court sentenced Kuss to death by shooting.

Miroslav (Friedrich) Navratil (July 19, 1893 in Sarajevo – June, 1947 in Zagreb) was a Croatian soldier, pilot, and general who served in the armies of Austria-Hungary, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and the Independent State of Croatia.

Navratil was born in Sarajevo, within the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He attended gymnasium in Sarajevo, and finished cadet's school in Graz. In World War I he served in the military of Austria–Hungary, as a fighter pilot in the Imperial and Royal Aviation Troops. While on the Eastern and Italian fronts, he scored 10 victories, making him one of the most successful pilots from the empire in the war. He attained the rank of Oberleutnant.[1]
In 1918, Austria-Hungary dissolved and Navratil moved to the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, where he took on a position in the royal army. He rose to the rank of general, but was eventually retired from the army in 1940 because of conflict with Serb officers within its ranks.
With the establishment of the Independent State of Croatia on April 10, 1941 Navratil was brought back into active service. He was named as a military representative in Bucharest. He served as minister of the armed forces from to meet German leader Adolf Hitler. After he was relieved of his post he travelled to Vienna where his family was located and remained there until the end of World War II. In 1945 he moved to Zell am Seeno where he lived until he was found by American troops in 1946. He was sent back to communist Yugoslavia in 1947, where he was executed in June of that same year.

Vladimir Kren (1903-1948) was a major general of the Air Force of the Independent State of Croatia.
He held the rank of captain in the Yugoslav Royal Air Force before defecting to the German army on January 4, 1941. With him he took plans of Yugoslav air fields, which he gave to German officials. On his return to the newly proclaimed Independent State of Croatia, he was named a colonel in the Croatian Home Guard.[1] He was subsequently named the head of the air force on April 19, 1941.He retired of his own request on September 13, 1943. However, he was brought back into service in June 1944, and remained until the state's defeat in 1945. In 1948 he was extradited to Yugoslavia by the British, and was executed as traitor in Zagreb.

Vladimir Laxa (21 January 1870 – 1945) was born in Sisak, in what is now Croatia, and was a distinguished soldier and general. He spent his adult life from the age of 20 as a professional soldier who was highly decorated during the First World War. During World War II he was Army Chief of Staff of the Axis Independent State of Croatia (Nezavisna Država Hrvatska, NDH) from June 1941 until August 1942, when he resigned his commission in protest at atrocities committed by Ustaše irregular forces.
Laxa was commissioned into the Austro-Hungarian Army on 18 August 1890 . During the First World War he was commander of the 18th Mountain Brigade, and was one of only 131 men that during the First World War were awarded the Military Order of Maria Theresa, the highest Habsburg decoration; in Laxa's case for the “heroism, enormous bravery and tenaciously successful defence of positions” by himself and his men on Škabrijel (Italian: Mount Saint Gabriel) during the Eleventh Battle of the Isonzo in 1917 . After the war ended, he joined the newly-formed army of (what became known later as) the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
Yugoslavia was invaded by the German armed forces (Wehrmacht) on 6 April 1941, and this led to the proclamation of the Independent State of Croatia, of which he was first the military's second in command (April-June 1941) and then chief-of-staff. During the war he was awarded the state's Order of the Crown of King Zvonimir. In October 1941 he was transferred to the NDH High Command. He took part in a conference in Opatija (2-3 March 1942 that planned the Third anti-partisan offensive, codenamed ‘Trio’. He remained in the NDH high command until August 1942 when he resigned (although there is a source that claims that Laxa was "removed by order of Marshal Slavko Kvaternik and retired" ) due to his failure to obtain support from Ante Pavelić, NDH leader, for his wishes to end the atrocities of Ustaše irregulars, about which he had authored several scathing reports. Laxa was among the exodus that were forcibly returned to the Partisans at Bleiburg. He was executed on an unknown date in 1945 . He was subsequently buried in Mirogoj cemetery.

Dragoljub "Draža" Mihailović ( Драгољуб "Дража" Михаиловић; also known as "Чича Дража" or "Čiča Draža", meaning "old man Draža") (April 27, 1893 - July 17, 1946) was a Serbian general now primarily remembered as the World War II leader of the Chetnik movement. The organization, officially named the "Yugoslav Army in the Fatherland" (JVUO, ЈВУО), was founded as a royalist/nationalist Serbian resistance movement, but eventually transformed into a collaborationist Axis militia fighting against Allied forces in Yugoslavia. After the war, he was tried and convicted of high treason and war crimes by the Yugoslav authorities, and was consequently executed by firing squad.
