    And the most interesting is, that Russia and Japan are still in war! I remember, that when my history teacher told me years ago about this short and slashing campaign without signing a peacy treaty I was amazed!

    I already knew about it. The other Ruskie-Japanese encounter was pre-war at Khalin-Gol which many people believe set the stage for German defeat in Russia.

    After the Japanese were soundly defeated at Khalkin-Gol it allowed the Soviet Union to free up Siberian reserves. These exact same reserves were those that pushed the Wehrmacht away from Moscow in the winter of 1941/42.
    "When you go home tomorrow, don't expect anyone to know what you have been through. Even if they did know, most people probably wouldn't care anyway. Some of you may get the medals you deserve, many more of you will not. But remember this, all of you are now members of the front-line club, and that is the most exclusive club in the world." - Lt. Col. Matthew Maer CO 1st Battalion, the Princess of Wale's Royal Regiment. Camp Abu Naji, Oct. 2004

    To those in that club.
