Soviet Operational and Tactical Combat in Manchuria, 1945 - David M. Glantz
On 9 August 1945 a force of over 1.5 million Red Army soldiers employed extensive and imaginative maneuver to overcome terrain thought to be inpenetrable. With formidable Japanese defences along a front of more than 2700 miles spanning the most formidable terrain an army has ever faced, they utterly demolished the Japanese defenders, and forced them to surrender. To accomplish this unprecedented feat, the Soviet High Command had to transfer more than 500,000 troops, 7000 guns and mortars, 2000 tanks, 17,000 trucks, and thousands of tons of military equipment and supplies up to 6000 miles from European Russia to the Far East in one of the most massive and rapid military regroupings in history. Volume II covers the detailed course of operational and tactical fighting in virtually every combat sector.
