The Lost Territories

Following the war, the effects of National Humiliation policies were visited on Thailand’s new heads of state. The National Assembly underwent fierce debate over whether to accept France’s demand to return provinces acquired in 1941. The loss of the four provinces to French Indochina in 1946 cemented the symbolic status of the lost territories at a time when Thailand was attempting to move past the National Humiliation paradigm. The transfer of territory helped destroy the civilian government’s credibility and ensure the military’s return to power.
