A prologue to the Second World War, the Battle of Khalkhin Gol (Nomonhan) took place during the summer of 1939 between the Soviet Union and the Empire of Japan. The battle highlighted the use of massed armor to spearhead an offensive campaign. These tactics were replicated in Europe during the infamous German “blitzkrieg”. After commanding Soviet forces at Khalkhin Gol, Georgy Zhukov would later apply these tactics against the Germans during the Battle of Stalingrad, turning the course of the war in 1943.
