|Seige of Japan|
The Seige of Japan was a large military invasion by Commissars' Soviet Socialist Republic into the Japanese mainland. The invasion took rougly two months and thousands of Japanese soldiers and civilians died in the process. The Japanese military was ordered to hold every border they possibly could, but they were no match for Soviet navy. Constant artillery fire from the warships left the coasts and inner mainland desolate of life. After months of bloody fighting, the Japanese government surrended to the Soviets. Japan became a state of the C.S.S.R on March 3rd, 1946.
On January 6th, 1946, Prime Commissar Ivan Yurinov began constructing a large military plan to invade the Japanese mainland. He wanted it to be a test of Russia's new fortified navy. The Japanese military was already weak and feeble from their war with the United States of America. Ivan believed the takeover would be swift and quick. He came to the conclusion of his plan and slated the takeover of Japan to take only three weeks, though once the invasion began, it was going to take much longer.
On January 25th, 1946, Russia's warships left the coasts of Ozernoskiy, Opala, Adrianovka, Magadan, Nakhodka, and many other Eastern Russian coast towns and headed for Japan. When Russia's ships reached only five miles from the mainland, they bombarded almost every major coast city with artillery. The Japanese had no time to prepare for the invasion. Most of the casualties came from the bombarding of the coasts. The Red Army reached the shores of Akita and Niigata the same day and were met with no resistance. Soon after, the entire eastern coast of Japan was overran by the Russians.
The Battle of UonumaEdit
After two days of no resistance, the Russian advance was going strong into the heart of Japan, but on January 27th, 1946, the Russians were met with heavy mortar fire and fortified machine gun nests outside the town of Uonuma. The Russians were not expecting that kind of magnitude of resistance, therefore many soldiers died quickly during the first day. They quickly fell back about a mile from Uonuma and dug themselves in. During the next few days, the Russians slowly eased their way toward Uonuma. Constant mortar exchange and firefights made it difficult. After five days, the Japanese began to give in due to lack of ammunition and other supplies. After a week and a half of intense trench warfare, Uonuma fell to the Russians. All of the Japanese survivors were immediatley executed. This battle would mark the beginning of Japan's ultimate downfall.
Bombing of Mt. KomagatakeEdit
After the Russian advance of Uonuma, the Japanese military fell back even further to Mount Komagatake. By this time, Russian aircraft carriers began to send out bombing planes to take out pockets of resistance. The Japanese had little to nothing of air defense. On February 12th, 1946, Russian planes bombed the military base on Mt. Komagatake and also destroyed Numata Highway which was a vital route for Japanese supplies. The bombing devasted the Japanese military in the East. With Numata Highway destroyed, the Japanese resistance in the East were completely cut off. Russian planes continued to bomb northern and southern Japan which caused the Japanese military to crumble.
The Downfall of TokyoEdit
After weeks of bombing raids and tank deployments, the Imperial Army was almost virtually destroyed. The small pockets of Japanese that were left either surrended or were executed. On March 1st, 1946, the Red Army reached the outskirts of Tokyo. The Russian advance on the ground had halted while the Russian Air Force bombed the city. After several hours, the "OK" was given to the ground troops to resume their advance. Hundreds of civilians lay dead in the street, The survivors were captured and killed.
The suicide of Hideki Tojo and Emperor HirohitoEdit
On March 2nd, 1946, the C.S.S.R had gained full control of Japan. The Russian government ordered that Emperor Hirohito and Tojo Hideki be killed. On March 3rd, 1946, both where found dead in Japanese capital building. Both were killed by self-inflicted gunshots to the head. A suicide note from Hirohito was found on his dead body. He said things like, "...I wish to not die by the hands of inferior people." and "...They will have their day of reckoning.". On March 3rd, 1946, the flag of the C.S.S.R flew high over Tokyo.
