At the request of its Western Allies, on 9 August 1945 a force of
over 1.5 million Red Army soldiers, supported by over 5500 tanks,
and 27,000 artillery pieces, unleashed a massive offensive against
the vaunted Japanese Kwantung Army in Manchuria. Employing
extensive and imaginative maneuver to overcome terrain thought to
be impenetrable, within two weeks, the attacking forces overcame
formidable Japanese defenses along a front of more than 2700 miles
spanning the most formidable terrain an army has ever faced,
utterly demolished the Japanese defenders, and forced them to
surrender. The Red Army's spectacular military victory in Manchuria
has provided military theorists with an ideal model for the conduct
of modern maneuver in war.
Volume I covers in detail the background, strategic regrouping, and
strategic planning and conduct of the offensive.
