Title

30 Aug 1940-15 Aug 1945 - during World War II, Laos falls under Japanese control

Description

During World War II, Laos falls under Japanese control, at first through the collaborationist Vichy French government (from 30 August 1940 onwards), and later through outright occupation (9 March – 15 August 1945). During this period, most Hmong stayed loyal to the French and the Royal Lao Government, though some joined the Communist Party (renamed Pathet Lao in 1950).
