The Soviet Army Offensive: Manchuria, 1945 (5500 words)
[10-171] Commencing the attack without an artillery barrage at 0030, 9 August, under darkness and a torrential downpour from severe thunderstorms, the Soviets launched their forces along multiple axes over terrain the Kwangtung Army had thought to be impassible by large forces.
By 16 August the four combined arms armies had secured key cities in the region which ensured the collapse of the Japanese defenses in east Manchuria.
This delayed tramsmissions of cease-fire orders on 17 August 1945, during which time the Kwangtung Army was in preparation for a counter attack in the southeast.
