A thread for material, photography, articles and discussions related with the First Indochina War (1946-1954 ) and prior events (1940-1946). Hoping to get contributions from DFI members in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, Thailand.

@Tactical Frog Start with some matter on the subject that you know of.
Sure :) I have always been fascinated with the japanese period in Vietnam during WW2.
Probably related with watching Furyo .
Seriously the Japanese occupation of Vietnam is a pretty weird and unique story. It is the only time when Japanese chose to work with an european colonialist power instead of directly governing the conquered territories. By doing that they were of course putting aside their official policy of "Asia for Asians" . It also meant that the Vietnamese did not welcome Japanese as liberators . So there was no equivalent of a Bose in Vietnam ... which could have lead to a different future for this country. When the Japanese finally removed the French from power in March 1945 and declared Vietnam' s independence with Bao Dai as head of state , it was too late for changing the curse of events.

Here is a timeline :

1. In September 1940 Vietnam was occupied by Japanese forces, which were expanding throughout south-east Asia and seeking greater control over China’s southern borders.
2. Japan’s vision was that Asian nations like Vietnam be absorbed into its Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, a confederation free of Western influence or control.
3. For much of World War II, the Japanese allowed the French colonial government to continue ruling Vietnam. Japan lacked the men for a full scale occupation of Vietnam.
4. In March 1945 the Japanese, then in retreat from south-east Asia, abruptly ended French rule and seized control of Vietnam, installing Emperor Bao Dai as a puppet ruler.
5. With French control ended and the Japanese distracted, Ho Chi Minh and the nationalist Viet Minh flourished, gaining numbers and seizing control of parts of north-western Vietnam. Japan’s defeat in August 1945 then raised the question of who would rule post-war Vietnam.

May 1940 : crushing defeat of French army at the hands of nazi Germany signals the beginning of the end for the french colonial empire.
June 1940 : ten days before the French armistice, a non-aggression pact is signed between Japan and Thailand. Freshly appointed Thai Prime Minister, Marshal Phibun Songkram demands the return of Battambang and Siem Riep, two cambodian provinces Thailand had ceded under french pressure in 1907.
September-October 1940 : Japan secures control of Vietnam, stationning 10,000 Japanese soldiers, mainly around the ports, airfields and important industrial centres. Starts a 5 year-long "co-existence" between Japanese and French "vichyst" authorities under governor Decoux.
November-December 1940 : skirmishes at the border between Thai army and french forces begin.
January 1940 : French military command orders a naval operation against Bangkok. A small french fleet composed of one old light cruiser and four gun-boats secretly leaves its Cochin-China base for the Gulf of Thailand...

What I do know is that ex IJA trained the Viet Minh even fought combat actions against France. In fact they also helped Indonesia fight the Dutch in their independence struggle and even Burmese and Philipinnos. Truly the Japanese were unfairly slandered for heroically fighting Anglo Zionist dictates. You should already know they formed the INA to not only fight Britain but to be a nascent national army.

India is the largest country in the South Asian subcontinent. Its borders the Bay of Bengal in the east and the Arabian Sea in the west, with a coastline of 5560 kilometers. India is a large country with a population of 1.4 billion without history.

Marx said: "India has no history at all." But ancient India is one of the four ancient civilizations. From 2500 BC to 1500 BC, the Indus civilization was born near Pakistan. The reason why India is called an ancient civilization is because of this history.

But after that, the Aryans conquered the Indians and began the history of India's ravages. Afterwards Persians, Macedonians, Great Xia Greeks, Parthians, Dayues, Arabs, Turks, Afghanistan, Portugal, Holland, France, Britain and other countries invaded and conquered India. It was not until the announcement of the establishment of the Republic on January 26, 1950 that it truly became an independent country.

Throughout history, only the Maurya Dynasty and the Gupta Dynasty were established by the Indians themselves, but they were both destroyed by foreign enemies and did not continue.

Since the Aryan invasion, India has been conquered more than 30 times, which is not only sad but also lamentable! What a weird country this is!
@asaffronladoftherisingsun I believe there's a retard in need of education here.

This seems okay.

The oldest site of SARASVATI Civilization, Bhirrana and the largest site Rakhigarhi are located in BHARTIYA state of Haryana.For them coomers who do not get good marks no worries just follow marx.

Throughout history, only the Maurya Dynasty and the Gupta Dynasty were established by the Indians themselves, but they were both destroyed by foreign enemies and did not continue.
Why do you forget to mention the Chola Empire that reigned from 3rd century bce to 1279 ad, a period of 1500 years. It was a Sanatana Dharma Empire and extended to Burma & Indonesia at its peak. What about Maratha Ahoms etc? You nevertheless seem to have forgotten a lot many empires.

But after that, the Aryans conquered the Indians and began the history of India's ravages. Afterwards Persians, Macedonians, Great Xia Greeks, Parthians, Dayues, Arabs, Turks, Afghanistan, Portugal, Holland, France, Britain and other countries invaded and conquered India.

This particular para of yours is bs. I dont have a lot of time nevertheless I will quickly tell you this the vast wealth of Bharata attracted a lot of people both as traders and aggressors. Except for jihadihoards at around635ad they all got assimilated be it huns sakas scythians etc. Huns infact became so thoroughly SANATANA -ized that they started calling themselves KSHATRA and ruled according to DHARMA SHASTRAS.Today that “Hun” is one among 36 gotras of RAJPUTS today. Below is the coin of the Huna king of Kashmir, Meghavahana c. 5t ad The coin depicts Lord Shiva in his Tribhanga form holding a Trishula. The obverse depicts Goddess Lakshmi sitting on a lotus. Hunas used Sanskrit in Brahmi script as their official language.

Listen idiot , those who came were assimilated just like your sinicization process.
I know from where you , come.
Weird country is chuna which purposefully destroyed its heritage .
India has heritage and Infact greater heritage other than , indus valley bullshit .
And there were countless other dynasties.
Other than 2 , namely brits and Turks nobody could conquer india and those who did were assimilated unlike China which suffered horribly invasions after invasions from the north and finally japnese colonized you .
What a weird country China js
