"This seemingly subservient behavior convinced the Phibun regime that Vichy France would not seriously resist a confrontation with Thailand." I find this sentence ambiguous. Does it mean to say Vichy France wouldn't seriously resist Thai opposition, or that it wouldn't resist a confrontation, which is to say, mutual opposition? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.82.173.201 (talk) 21:51, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Should this article discuss how Thailand had to return the territories to France after World War II? Paul C 18:11, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

If the article didn't discuss this point, the readers would be wondering what happened after the second world war. Everybody knows that Thailand only got the territories from France because of Japan's intervention. Thailand was on Japan's side in the second world war and as such ended up a defeated nation. It's going to be the natural curiosity of any reader to know the mechanism whereby these territories were eventually restored to France. (58.10.102.68 13:14, 29 April 2007 (UTC))

Part of World War II[edit]

This war wasn't part of World War II, it was a concurrent War, much like the Winter War. Oberiko 17:49, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Right! This war wasn't part of World War II. Also, if the name was written like the others, then the name of the war should change as "Franco-Thai War". 96.229.179.106 00:17, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Strength of the French Navy in this war?[edit]

Hi All, this article IMHO looks pretty good. To further improve the comparison of the opposing forces, can anyone please add which was the strength of the french naval forces in Indochina at that time?

No one wins[edit]

No country was victorious, because Japan steps in and makes it over. 207.233.67.181 (talk) 18:46, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Name of the conflict[edit]

Shouldn't this be called the Franco-Thai War, along the lines of Franco-Prussian War? I don't think "French-Thai" follows standard naming conventions. 69.129.36.50 (talk) 15:25, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Opposing Forces[edit]

"The most obvious deficiency of the French army lay in its shortage of armour: it could only field twenty antiquated Renault FT-17s against the 669 of the Royal Thai Army." Really?? 669 Tanks? I know little about this campaign but that's a surprisingly large number. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.32.30.67 (talk) 08:30, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Thai Strategic victory[edit]

I have cited a source from Frenchman B. Falls book The Street Without Joy' where he quite clearly states that the French were forced to surrender to Thailand three provinces in Cambodia and two provinces in Laos. This quite clearly means a Thai victory in terms of strategy. But yet Albrecht simply doesn't want to see this and keeps deleting this! Explain! --Bruichladdich1 (talk) ) 19:51, 15 May 2010 (GMT)

A Part of WWII[edit]

Isn't this war a part of world war 2 since the Fall of France was one of the causes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.77.156.177 (talk) 17:24, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Hallo!

New to Wiki.

But since the link to the naval Battle of Ko Chang clearly shows a total French victory, and compares it to Tsushima, how come this article states: "The subsequent battle of Ko Chang that the result is heavy damage each other." ??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.148.43.238 (talk) 21:39, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
