Combat operations near Lake Khasan started on July 29, 1938 and continued on a large scale until August 11 of the same year. The bone of contention was a small segment of Soviet territory on the Soviet-Manchurian border in the Far East. As a result of an intense armed struggle between large units of the Red Army's 39th Rifle Corps and Japanese units of the Kwantung and Korean Army, Mikado's troops were ousted from the Soviet territory, and the territorial conflict was settled on conditions favourable for the USSR. The present book narrates about the military expansion of Japan in China in the 1930s and about battles fought in the vicinity of Lake Khasan. It contains 80 photographs, 20 drawings of armament and uniforms of the contending forces, and a map of the theatre of operations.
