Chapter Five addresses events that occurred in Thailand between 1973 and 1975. It begins with the student-led movement that suddenly and startlingly toppled the military government on “Bloody Sunday” that wanted to turn the country toward democracy and away from the dictatorship of Thanon Kittikachorn. In 1974, under the interim regime, headed by Prime Minister Sanya, the Thais sought to lay the foundation for a parliamentary democracy. 270 In the last quarter of 1974, the Second Thai Army conducted sustained operations in the Thai communist heartland of the southern Na Kae District of Nakhon Phanom Province, which came to a head with the Mayaguez Incident.
