The Book

Get Alvin D. Coox NOMONHAN Japan Against Russia, 1939. This is an exhaustive book on this campaign with lots of personal accounts by Japanese who were there. More than you ever wanted to know about it. over 1000 pages softback. Really good on the events leading up to it and what happened afterward up to the Russian invasion in 1945.

From the Russian side no similar book sadly, but one website has some good maps and other info.

Novikov, Marian - "Victory at Khalkhin Gol" 1971 edition.

See:

Unfortunately for most of you, folks, the book is in Russian.
