|Title:||The Indonesian Revolution and the Singapore Connection, 1945-1949||Authors:||Yong Mun Cheong||Issue Date:||2004||Publisher:||NUS Press||Citation:||Yong Mun Cheong (2004). The Indonesian Revolution and the Singapore Connection, 1945-1949 : 210. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||This book explores a little-known phase in the history of both Indonesia and Singapore: how the dynamics of the Indonesian revolution (1945-1949) overflowed into Singapore. Singapore was a base for the Indonesian nationalists, the British, the Dutch, and Chinese traders, with each group exploiting prevailing circumstances for their own interests. Indeed, the author argues that the success of Indonesia's struggle against the Dutch was due in no small measure to the opportunities available in Singapore to advance Indonesia's strategic aims. The Singapore connection during these years was a vital link.
