Soon after the establishment of Soviet hegemony in eastern Europe, Soviet control there began to erode. To a considerable degree, the Cold War had developed out of the American reaction to the Soviet takeover of eastern Europe during and immediately after World War II. However, the Soviets' control of eastern Europe began to unravel even before the institutions to maintain their presence were in place. Yugoslavia, initially a stronghold for the Soviets, slipped out of Soviet hands as early as 1948. This event helped precipitate an opportunity for the Cold War to end during the 1950s. After the victory of the communist-backed Partisans over foreign and domestic enemies during World War II, Yugoslavia became one of the staunchest Soviet clients in eastern Europe.
