The Japanese invasion and occupation of Thailand during World War II required the state to invent continuities between its own National Humiliation narrative and Japan’s discourse of Pan-Asianism. Thai leaders insisted that the two countries were natural allies. Both nations had been bullied by western imperialism yet kept their independence. The Thai claimed that Japan’s goal of liberating Asia was merely a continuation of its own efforts to drive the French out of mainland Southeast Asia. Through its support of Japan, Bangkok hoped to regain former territories and secure a privileged place for Thailand within the new order in Asia.
