Throughout the late 1930s, Japan and the USSR clashed repeatedly. In 1939, along the Mongolian border at Khalkin Gol – Nomonhan, the Soviet Army under General Georgy Zhukov defeated a large Japanese force. Japan subsequently abandoned plans to invade Siberia and in 1941 concluded a neutrality treaty with the USSR.
