Episode 69: The Malayan Emergency



Happy Father’s Day, if you are in the United States!  And on this day 71 years ago, the communist revolt called "The Malayan Emergency" began.  Now with today’s podcast episode, we finish our coverage of the early Cold War years by looking at the Malayan Emergency, and we will follow the path the Malay peninsula took to become independent.  Hint:  it was different from the rest of Southeast Asia, where nationalist movements developed many years earlier.
