    I think they were on the Japs side, but if I remember correctly the Thai ambassador in America wouldn't tell the Americans, cant blame him really.

    In Thai history books they heroically resisted the Jap hordes, more honest ones say different. They're the same as the French, a bunch of collaborators who got the history books rewritten because they were needed in the post-war political structure (gotta fight those damn commies!). Luckily, like the French, they had a few people outside the country who had enough balls not to have any truck with collaboration, those guys became the "official" government in exile and after the war France and Thailand were retroactively made "allies" and promoted from being on the losing side in the war to being on the winning side. (I don't really blame the Thais, they would have been flattened by the Japs, but the French seemed to actively enjoy being on the Nazi side, gave them the chance to deal with those damn Juifs once and for all).
