      This book went into detail about how Malaysian Tamil labourers were used to build a railway connecting Siam and Burma (present day Thailand and Myanmar) by the Japanese Empire in during World War II for militaristic purposes. In the mid th century, Siam had a unique and well-established political system called the “Mandala” system. The underlying philosophy of this system was very different from the European notion of nation-states. Instead, the “Mandala” system focused on spheres of influence in which weaker rulers had to pay tributes to the more powerful rulers.

      A special Assembly of the League was held in February (17 months after the Japanese invasion). 40 nations voted that Japan was to blame for the war and should abstained. Only Japan voted against it - Mr Matsuoka, the Japanese delegate, argued that China was not really a country (China had just had a revolution, and its government was fighting a civil war). A War of Shadows is W. Stanley Moss’s sequel to his classic Ill Met by Moonlight. A former British operative who, along with Patrick Leigh Fermor, once kidnapped a Nazi general (as told in Ill Met), Moss offers this rousing account of his World War II adventures as an agent in Crete, Macedonia, and the Siamese jungle—rife with intrigue.

      To handle the wartime flood of personnel, the Signal Corps opened a second replacement training center in February at Camp Crowder, Missouri, near the town of Neosho in the southwestern corner of the state. Camp Crowder now received most of the Army's signal recruits, including those entering through the Affiliated Plan, who traveled there to receive basic training.
