Persepsi Mahasiswa Terhadap Perjuangan Kadet Soewoko di Lamongan 1948-1949

Wardatul Afifah



One of the resistance carried out in the Lamongan District was led by the Kadet Soewoko. Kadet Soewoko is part of Section I, Kompi I, Tamtama KDM Force, which is responsible for defending the Lamongan Regency from the Dutch attack. The existence of the Kadet Soewoko’s struggle is a reminder of past events in the younger generation. This is intended so that the struggle of the Kadet Soewoko becomes a local example that can foster a spirit of nationalism in the younger generation. Based on the background described above, the formulation of the problem in this study is as follows: (1) how is the condition of Lamongan during the Agresi Militer Belanda II? (2) how is the perception of Lamongan students towards the struggle of the Kadet Soewoko in 1948-1949?This study uses a qualitative, descriptive method which consists of four stages, namely the preparation stage, the exploration phase, and the completion stage of the research results. The results of the study show that at the time of the Agresi Militer Belanda II the areas in Lamongan were controlled by the Dutch through a strategy of guerrilla warfare. Kadet Soewoko was a freedom fighter in Lamongan in leading and giving orders to his troops to move against the Dutch. Regarding the contribution of the Kadet Suwoko, it should get the attention of the current generation, one of them is Lamongan students. It cannot be denied that the majority of Lamongan students lack knowledge about the history of the Kadet Soewoko’s struggle.
