This ill-planned and poorly executed operation saw the loss or capture in less than a week of more than 20 Allied merchants and warships. To celebrate this fact we would like to invite you for the three programs presented below. Light tanks were landed to support the Japanese infantry, and the force advanced north, cutting off the Dutch positions in the west. On December 22, the Japanese bombed the Dutch defences, and occupied their oil fields. Both these forces would support the Western Force, which was to attack and capture the oil refineries and airfields in Palembang.

Beginning in the s, the Japanese Empire became mired in a protracted, undeclared war with China. The outer islands under naval control, however, were regarded as politically backward but economically vital for the Japanese war effort, and these regions were governed the most oppressively of all. Before the arrival of Japanese troops, there were conflicts between rival Indonesian groups where people were killed, vanished or went into hiding. My sole criticism is the lack of an index to his great charts and maps. Life there was an idyllic tropical paradise for the typical Dutch expatriate. In Java we clearly see how sugar.

The author takes us through the trials to come where a succession of Allied ships were lost to overwhelming Japanese air and sea power. The new book details many aspects of the East Indies campaign never before written about in English. Within only four months, the Japanese had occupied the archipelago. They split up the Dutch East Indies into three separate regions and referred to it as the 'Southern Territories'. The nightmare soon spread to the Netherlands East Indies where Japan targeted vital oil resources. A four and a half-year struggle followed as the Dutch tried to re-establish their colony; although Dutch forces re-occupied most of Indonesia's territory a guerrilla struggle ensued, and the majority of Indonesians, and ultimately international opinion, favoured Indonesian independence.

The Netherlands Indies and Japan book

This ill-planned and poorly executed operation saw the loss or capture in less than a week of more than 20 Allied merchants and warships. In contrast to Dutch repression of Indonesian nationalism, the Japanese allowed indigenous leaders to forge links amongst the masses, and they trained and armed the younger generations.

In this illustrated title, Mark Stille tells the full story of the battle of the Java Sea, explaining how and why the Japanese achieved such a resounding victory, and delving into the tremendous impact of the battle on the course of the Pacific War.

Womack also covers the disastrous attempt by the RNN to evacuate Java immediately prior to the surrender of the East Indies. But the combined fleet of Allied ships were determined to put up a fight. On February 27,the Allied striking force set course to intercept the Japanese invasion force in the Java Sea.

It is for both young and old who want to remember and overcome the past. Over the next two days, as the Allies attempted to flee, five more ships were sunk.

The Dutch forces who resisted the landing were quickly subdued.

This is special since the memorial has been initiated by citizens of Nagasaki and also because the memorial commemorates all victims, those who survived as well as those who died in captivity.
