419th Meeting : "A Travelogue of WWII Sites in Northern Thailand”. 

Tuesday, 13 June, 2017.

A Talk by Jack Eisner.

The Talk:

From the very beginning of World War II in Thailand, the northern part of the country took on a central role in the Japanese drive westward. The north was the staging area for both the Japanese and Thai armies’ invasion of Burma. One way of understanding the history of this period is to visit the sites where the history took place. A travelogue approach to WWII-related sites in this region is an easy, interesting and quick way to get an historical overview.

The Speaker:    

Jack Eisner is a Canadian expatriate and retired academic, living in northern Thailand since
1997. He has for several years had an interest in researching the history of WWII in northern Thailand. Jack has had several articles published on the topic of the American Volunteer Group's (Flying Tigers) operations in Thailand in 1942.
