Khalkin-Gol

John Rigley ran a scenario of an Russia-Japanese battle using early war equipment. Historically, the Japanese and Russians skirmished in the late 1930's at the Manchurian border and the Japanese were convincingly defeated. This little known campaign had critical consequences in that their loss was one of the reasons they later decided not to help the Germans in 1941 by attacking from the East while Barbarossa was in progress.
