Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g Marshal of Yugoslavia (Marshal) - Maršal of Yugoslavia was an honorary title of the Supreme Commander of Armed Forces and not a military rank. The first and the only one was given to Josip Broz Tito, who (beside the title of Maršal and Supreme Commander), also held the lifelong function of the President of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the leader of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia.
  2. ^ General - was highest military rank for deputy supreme commander. Ivan Gošnjak, while serving as a defence minister and deputy supreme commander of SFRY with a rank of General of the Army - 4 star, was considered for promotion in to this rank, no officers were promoted to this rank.
