Title:
Landon Chronicles (1945): Kenneth on the Political Effects of the End of the War on Southeast Asia (hour 68, clip 1)
Date:
1945
Description:
When Harry Truman became President, the Potsdam conference changed the war theater for MacArthur. This brought Lord Louis Mountbatten's command into Thailand and the Indochinese states south of the 16th parallel, with Chiang Kai Shek north of that. Roosevelt's policy on no return of the French to Indochina aborted right there at Potsdam, courtesy of Harry Truman. That was a dramatic change. At the end of the war, the British put twenty-one demands on the Thai. So the State Department went to work on the twenty-one demands, which led to Kenneth's travelling out at the end of the war.
