On the 70th anniversary of victory over Japan and the end of the Second World war. All about the brilliant operations of the Soviet fleet in the far East and the Pacific ocean, the long-awaited rematch at Port Arthur and Tsushima.
The Supreme Commander of the USSR I. V. Stalin said: "the Defeat of Russian forces in 1904 during the Russo-Japanese war left in the minds of people painful memories. It fell on our country a black spot. Our people believed that the day would come when Japan would be defeated and the stain will be eliminated. For forty years we waited, the people of the old generation, this day. And so this day came..."
In August of 1945, the Soviet troops with the active assistance of the Pacific fleet and the Red Bannered Amur flotilla in the shortest time defeated half-million Kwantung army, came to Port Arthur, liberated South Sakhalin, Kuril Islands and North Korea.
In this book you will find comprehensive information about the revival of our naval forces in Primorye and the far East, on the establishment of a shipbuilding base and combat-ready compounds, the difficult formation of the Pacific fleet. And how the Stalinist Soviet Union took revenge for the humiliating defeat of Imperial Russia, regained lost territory, defeated the "samurai" and forced the Japanese Empire to unconditional surrender and triumphantly ended the Second World war.
