    Glantz also covers it in one of his books on August Storm...
    He also wrote an article about it in the Quarterly Journal of Military History.
    "The Soviet Invasion of Japan," Quarterly Journal of Military History, vol. 7, no. 3, Spring 1995, pp. 96–97
    Last time I looked though, the QJMH article could not be found online.

    Justice is a compromise between morality and expediency.

    Politics. The British and American public had bought the Soviet Union as a heroic wartime ally. It took three years of peacetime politics for policies to change.

    Practicality. Who was going to arrest the perpetrators? You and whose army? At what cost to the world?
