How did World War II affect nationalist movements in Southeast Asia?Note:
Just off the top of my head...
The "victors" had fought for freedom and democracy, to liberate Europe from the Nazi yoke... so it weakened their position in holding colonies. [ Often the colonies and commonwealths had either suffered under occupation or sent a great deal of supplies and manpower to their "masters" (England and France).
