Chapter Summary

The Japanese coup de force of 9 March 1945, in what was then French Indo-China and is now Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, is an event whose importance varies depending on which national historiography produces the accounts. There is also an abundantly documented Japanese case, which shows that the Japanese had planned the possibility of a buryoku shori, or coup de force, long before there was any real resistance among the French population in Indo-China, at least on any considerable scale. The Japanese would have been content with monarchical form of independence for Indo-China, just as in Burma some of them favoured those few Thakins who would have supported a modified form of a restored Burmese monarchy.

Keywords:Burma; Buryoku Shori; Indo-China; Japan; Thakins
