The Final Summer: Manchuria 1945


August 6th, 1945: The United States drops an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, the “Little Boy”.

August 9th, 1945: The United States drops a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, the “Fat Man”.

Just three days after the United States devastated Japan with the use of an atomic bomb, the Soviet Union invades Japanese-held Manchuria. The Soviet Union had multiple armies that were able to attack the Japanese from all sides. From the East pushed the 1st Far East Front, from the north, the 2nd Far East Front, and from the west, the Transbaikal Front. Each force had a full complement of tanks, artillery, and aircraft support for their respective objectives.

Defending against the Soviets was the Kwantung Army of the Imperial Japanese Army. While the Kwantung army had a large force of men and a decent sized force of tanks, artillery, and aircraft, it proved to be no match for the overwhelming force of the Soviet Union. In a classic pincer move, the Soviets swept into Manchuria from all directions. The invasion lasted a total of 12 days and was the last major battle of World War II.

This FSO is set to depict the very late-war brawl between the Soviet Union and Japan.
