August Storm

Hi everyone,
Longtime member/lurker, first time poster here. I have a background in British Commonwealth medals and militaria, but have dabbled in Soviet stuff from time to time.

I am hoping some members may be able to recommend reading material (in English please, or possibly French!) regarding the Manchurian campaign of 1945. I am aware of ‘August Storm’ by Glantz; are there any other good reads on this topic out there? Or, for that matter, on Khalkin Gol?

Bill

Re: August Storm

Welcome Bill! Unfortunately I don't have my entire library at hand but Glantz's August Storm is about as good as any operational overview. This is a good video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAtV-40hg7E.

Re: August Storm

Sorry - I think the link I posted is in Russian but you should be easily able to find an English version.

Re: August Storm

Hi Desantnik, thanks for the tip. It doesn’t seem like there’s much in English other than Glantz, but his book is very good so it fills the gap well.
