Abstract

The almost continual fighting that followed Japan's defeat scarred everywhere in the region—from the violent British occupation of south Vietnam to the horrors of Partition in India. This work explores the lives of politicians, soldiers and ordinary people as the travails of decolonisation merged with the hatreds of the Cold War.
