(p.11) 1 France’s Deluded Quest for Allies
Negotiating China's Destiny in World War II

Marianne Bastid-Bruguiere

This chapter focuses on France’s efforts to maintain a role in East Asian affairs and protect its control of French Indo-China. The chapter traces the decline of French influence to WWI, examines France’s efforts to maintain a collective security approach before the outbreak of war, and analyzes how France tried to hold on to Indo-China during the war by following a policy of accommodating Japan while not alienating China – an impossibility.

Keywords:   France, Indo-China, WWII, Japan, Charles de Gaulle, Allies
