The National Liberation War of Macedonia ( , transliterated Narodnoosloboditelna Borba na Makedonija, NOB; Croatian, , NOB) was a political and military campaign, part of World War II, carried out by mainly Macedonian Partisans of the People's Liberation Army of Macedonia (part of the Yugoslav Partisan movement) from October 11, 1941 until the end of 1944 when Yugoslavia was reestablished. The operation was a regional conflict of the greater Yugoslav People's Liberation War but combatants also developed further aspirations over the geographic region of Macedonia.
