    Russia Against Japan: essays When I first picked up J.N. Westwood's book about the Russo-Japanese War (), I had very little knowledge of the conflict. I remember studying it briefly in high school, but as I recall, it was only mentioned for the simple fact that it was the first time. The Bolsheviks’ January offensive against American troops in north Russia -- which began with the deadly attack on Mead’s platoon -- attracted attention in newspapers across the nation.

      A Japan less impressed with Soviet military capability and faced with choosing between war against the Anglo-American powers or joining Germany .   It is difficult to get a fix on actual losses, both countries being notoriously secretive and notoriously apt to over-claim. The best history in English is Alvin D. Coox, Nomonhan: Japan Against Russia, (Stanford Univ Press, ). Below are my notes from Coox's book. (Expect typographical errors; it was done in haste.).

    Since , when Japanese military planners first defined hypothetical enemies, Russia, the United States, and France fell into this category. From the geostrategic standpoint, the Army would have the major role in a war against Russia, the Navy in one against the United States.   The army had tried to prevent the Soviet Union from participating in the war, because it had believed that Soviet participation would have a great political and strategic effect on major operations against Japan’s main enemy, the United States. Japan was prepared to give up Manchuria in order to keep the USSR out of the war.
