Yangon [now Yangon]), Burma's Nazi regime and murdered heroes who played a key role in safeguarding Burma's sovereignty from Britain. Aung San was an active anti-British before World War II; during World War II he joined forces with the Japanese but joined the Allies before he led Burma's self-government.
Aung San was a member of a Mexican student workers' organization at the University of Rangoon, where she headed the U Nu student strikes in February 1936. Following Burma's 1937 breakaway from India and his 1938 degree, he worked for the nationalistic Dobama Asiayone ("We-Burmans Association" or "Our Burma Association"), whose general secretary he became in 1939.
In search of overseas assistance for Burma's 1940 independency, Aung San was approached by the Japanese in China. Then they helped him set up a Burma army power to help them with their 1942 Burma outbreak. The Burma Independent Army has grown with the Japanese advancement and has taken over the management of the area.
Aung San, Defence Secretary in the Ba Maw marionette administration (1943-45), became sceptical about Burma's promise of Burma's Japanese-even if it was an unlikely triumph for the Japs, and was dissatisfied with her handling of Burma's armed services. Thus, in March 1945, Major General Aung San changed his National Army of Burma to the Allied cause.
Following the capitulation of the Japans in August 1945, the British tried to integrate his troops into the ordinary military, but he detained important members and founded the People's Volunteer Organization. It was supposedly a veterans' organization interested in welfare services, but in reality it was a privately owned military force to replace its Burmese national armies and be the main force in the fight for independent .
After Aung San participated in the founding of the Antifascist People's Freedom League (AFPFL) in 1944, an indigenous grassroots Nazi organization, she used this unified front to become vice-chairman of Burma's executive council in 1946. He was in fact Taoiseach but stayed subservient to the UK Governor's override. Following talks with UK Premier Clement Attlee in London, he heralded a deal (January 27, 1947) providing for Burma's autonomy within a year.
Although he was condemned by the Communist Party as an "instrument of Britain's imperialism", he backed a motion for Burma's sovereignty outside the Commonwealth. Mr President, on 19 July, the PM and six fellow Members, among them his sibling, were murdered in the Rangoon Commonwealth Hall while the Board was meeting.
