Alexei Vasilevsky, commander of Soviet troops in the Far East, Marshal of the Soviet Union  Alexei Vasilevsky, commander of Soviet troops in the Far East, Marshal of the Soviet Union: “The Transbaikal Front troops were advancing along a rough terrain. The enemy did not suppose that the Soviet troops would be able to cover hundreds of kilometers in the roughest conditions in a week’s time. The failure of the Kwantung Army sped up Japan’s surrender in general. The end to the war in the Far East saved hundreds of thousands of American and British soldiers from death as well as saved millions of Japanese nationals from an innumerable toll and suffering...”

Japan’s most important land force – the more than 1 million-strong Kwantung Army – was located in northeastern China and on the Korean peninsula.

While preserving large land forces, Japan, according to American military estimates, would have preserved the ability to resist up to the spring of 1947.

On August 9, the U.S.S.R., in line with its allied commitments, started the offensive. The large-scale Manchuria operation lasted two weeks and ended in the defeat of Japan’s Kwantung Army. The Japanese grouping numbering more than 1 million people was defeated, more than 600,000 Japanese soldiers surrendered.

 Soviet troops prevented the Kwantung Army from falling back to Japanese islands and joining troops deployed there to resist Allied forces.
Mao Zedong wrote that “The Red Army came to help the Chinese people to oust the aggressors. There was previously no such example in China’s history. The influence of this event is invaluable.”

Completing the defeat of the Japanese aggressors in China, the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R., together with Korean partisans, contributed to the liberation of Korea.

On August 27, 1945, American forces started landing in Japan and did not meet any serious resistance. Soon they completed the disarmament of the Japanese forces.
