This was a remarkably interesting piece, Ron. Even as someone who has taken a strong interest in Japanese history, that nation’s relationship with Russia/the Soviet Union is a topic that I’ve rarely come across in most of the books I’ve read and films I’ve watched, including those on WWII. Kudos to you for tackling the subject. I quite enjoyed it!

Outer space enthusiast. Japanese history junkie. I write about politics, culture, and mental illness. Disagreement is a precursor to progress.
