Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the French accounts, and then compares the version derived from them with that obtainable from Japanese sources. The causality of the coup is not the only historical issue. To cut a main source of supply to Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist China, and thus bring about the end of the China Incident, the Japanese used the isolated and weakened condition of French Indo-China after the fall of France in June 1940 to insist that the route Haiphong-Yunnan be cut, and that the cut be supervised by Japanese forces. A study of the Japanese accounts shows that the idea of a coup de force occurs very early in the history of the Japanese garrison army in Indo-China, and also in Foreign Ministry circles in Tokyo.
