Battle of Khalkhin Gol

Post by sujin007 on Sun Nov 18, 2012 7:31 pm

The Battle of Khalkhin Gol was the decisive engagement of the Soviet-Japanese Border War. Japan occupied Manchuria in 1931 (some consider this the start of World War II).

Military interest was then turned to Soviet territories that bordered this area. The first clash between Japanese and Soviet forces was in 1938.

There were frequent engagements along the border of Manchuria, but the Japanese were decisively defeated at Khalkhin Gol in May of 1939.

The engagement was relatively small compared to later battles of the war. Only 95,000 troops were involved, but the implications of the battle were huge.

The Japanese saw the resources in the Soviet Union as unattainable. They instead seized resource-rich territories in Southeast Asia.

The Empire of Japan and the Soviet Union signed the Japanese-Soviet Nonaggression Pact in April of 1941, and both countries remained at peace until Stalin declared war on Japan in 1945 , after the atomic bombs were dropped.
