I became Stalin chapter 85
The Chinese front was running more horribly than in actual history.
Still, the United States was putting off the war in Asia and the Pacific under the European priority route, and Japan was continuing its streak by winning consecutive victories in Pearl Harbor, Indochina, and Malay.
The insignificant amount of aid that should have come through the Burma route beyond the Himalayas was lost, implying that British India could no longer cooperate with China for its own defense.
Here, the Soviet Union monopolized the lease-less goods delivered by the United States under the pretext of “not to provoke Japan.”
“If U.S. goods flowed through us into China, the Japanese Empire would use their fleet to cut off all leased goods coming to the Soviet Union. For the security of the Soviet Union this is by no means acceptable… .”
“Think about it, President Zhang. We, the Soviet Union, cannot afford a two-sided front. Nevertheless, 30 divisions have been deployed in the Far East to prepare for the start of a war against Japan after the end of the Great German War, and I just want to have a ‘friendly’ relationship with them right now. Wasn’t it, your Excellency, who refused the Soviet aid ten years ago?”
Chiang Kai-shek had nothing to say.
No matter how much you think about it, Japan is a bug crawling on your skin, and the Communist Party is a serious disease that has penetrated your heart. That is why he used every means possible to purge the Communist Party’s red elements. Even giving up Soviet support.
However, Germany, which had always been thought to be an ally, sided with Japan and struck the Republic of China in the back of the head, and now, with the cooperation of the stupid Bongchun Warlord Zhang Hak-liang and the insidious mouse bastard Mao Zedong, the war with Japan is entangled.
Now, as if when the Soviet Union tried to sabotage within the Kuomintang, they were still holding hands with Japan and flirting with each other, but loudly to China, they were arguing that you had refused support.
The U.S., who was the only reliable ally, was bitten by the wars with Germany and Japan and was pouring out all of its support to the Soviet Union, a partner in the Great German War, and the Soviets ate them all like pigs and called their weight class, so China was on the verge of dying of dryness. .
‘Damn you bastards… .’
Perhaps in the future, he is also manipulating the Kuomintang and Japan to check at the same time by throwing things at the CCP’s puppets. Russians have always been like that. It’s like reaching out with a hand with yellow nails, greedy for the land masses of the Far East… .
* * *
Molotov looked at Chiang Kai-shek’s troubled expression and inwardly laughed at him.
‘Anyone who can’t properly control one of my subordinates is the number one warlord in China?’
The local warlords under Chiang Kai-shek competed for allegiance to get even a little more support from the Soviet Union. The Chinese Communist Party was one of them.
Corrupt politicians in the national government have sold gold and dollars, even the most secret secrets in front of beauty and goods, to those who pay a good price. The information spread around and contributed to the KMT’s disastrous defeat.
In the past few times, they have been victorious, but the elite divisions of the national government also melted together.
The chief’s intentions were simple. China must not become one. The size of the territory claimed by the Republic of China was larger than the vast territory of the Soviet Union, except for the frozen lands of Siberia, and the population was more than double.
If a single government took over this huge piece of land, it would inevitably pose a huge threat to the security of the Soviet Union.
“Even if the power that has taken over China is the Communist Party, it’s the same!”
We need to tear up the Chinese land as much as possible. The secretary insisted strongly. I don’t like China, but the more China the better. Manchuria, East Turkestan (Xinjiang Uyghur), Tibet. You say you have to rip them all apart.
“Instead, we, the Soviet government, plan to support the national government for goods of which nationality cannot be identified.”
“Here is a list and quantity of supplies… When will we discuss the payment?”
Japan, which touched the United States, would be defeated soon enough, and neither the Kuomintang nor the Communist Party had to win. However, in order to control the war situation from behind, you have to keep a string on both sides.
To do that, it was better to throw in some carrots and tame them to starve for support.
Although it is possible to make some profit by selling goods, this amount did not pay the cost of maintaining the franchisors within the Kuomintang and the Communist Party.
But wouldn’t it be nice to be able to create collaborators with whatever material you can print, and earn a little bit of gold and send it to the US to receive a loan?
‘Chang Kai-suk, Mao Zedong, or the Japanese Empire… .’
They were all puppet clowns dancing on the palm of the secretary’s hand.
He came to match Chiang Kai-shek, Chuikov, who served as the commander of the Far East Military District, to the Communist Party, and Konstantin Smethanin to Japan, who are each sending oil.
Chiang Kai-shek, who sighed as he looked at the list of supplies, was probably skeptical.
Could it be that the Soviets are working in cooperation with the Communist Party? But I don’t think even the dignitaries of the national government would be involved. They wouldn’t even think that they were selling information to Japan.
The government of the Republic of China was leaking information and funds one after another like a poison from the bottom. However, in the end, according to the will of Comrade General Secretary, they will have to control Mao’s Communist Party, which will take over half of South China and take over North China.
* * *
The CCP faithfully obeyed the logic of power in front of the carrots it was given, and was building up its power by avoiding engagement with the Japanese army.
President Mao Zedong and Commander-in-Chief Zhu Deok purged the Bolshevik advisers sent by the Comintern and took them to the point of being humble enough to be subservient to the Soviet support for the subject that came to power, and Chuikov was not very fond of them.
“Comrade General Chuikov, here is our plan of operation. Please grant permission.”
The Soviet Army provided supplies and equipment necessary for the operation only when they were satisfied with their operational plan.
Even if the results were bad, they didn’t ask for criticism or self-criticism, just submitted a detailed report and provided supplies, so the Communist Party worked hard to get support and wrote the report.
I don’t know if it all goes to the Japanese army. Chuikov thought so.
The general secretary ordered them to find out their operations so that the Japanese army could properly win against the Communists and the Kuomintang.
Clearly, he could not understand the Japanese army, which was sometimes defeated even though he gave out every detail of the operational plan, but anyway, the Japanese army had an overall advantage over the Chinese army.
“Well, good. The necessary supplies will depart from the Far East Military District. Pray for victory.”
“Thank you, Comrade Chuikov.”
If they wanted assistance, they also graciously accepted the request for Manchuria to become an independent Soviet republic after the end of the war.
Manchuria was still occupied by Japan’s puppet state, Manchukuo, and the Communist Party had only a semi-independent power under the Kuomintang based in the liberated area of Shaanxi at best.
It was funny that he promised to give me something he couldn’t even get his hands on and rubbed his hand for support, but anyway, it’s an order, so I can’t help it.
‘How can such a cowardly person win against President Chiang Kai-shek who leads millions of troops?’
No matter how fierce the Japanese army was, they were struggling in the vast Chinese territory. The report sent by Ambassador Smetanin to Japan described the pathetic situation of the Japanese military.
Japan turned the US as an enemy in this situation, so the ultimate victor would be Chiang Kai-shek… Does the Republican Party win?
The potential to succeed in escaping halfway around the mainland of China from the southeast there was commendable, but in the end, that was all. Do we really need to help this guy eat half of mainland China?
“If you need anything through our liaison officers, please contact me. To our brothers in the Comintern, we are always ready to help.”
“Yes, yes, it’s okay, Comrade Commander.”
He deliberately put stress on the “Comintern,” and the Communist Party officials were only cringing whether they understood it or not.
A laugh came out inside. The corrupt Kuomintang, or the cowardly and insidious Communist Party.
Chuikov didn’t like the Chinese. Likewise, the Japanese, who were only ferocious and cruel, with their dwarf and ferocious subjects, were also disgusted. Doing a living experiment with prisoners! Are you sane?
He couldn’t understand when the general secretary showed particular favoritism toward Koreans, but now he seems to be able to understand it to some extent.
The units said to be active on the Eastern Front could not be met in person, but the newspapers were writing special articles every day about their bravery and outstanding skills.
Even if it’s a lie, at least it’s better than these disgusting bastards.
Chuikov liked the daring and brave, and he disliked the cowardly. Having escaped from Manchuria under Japanese rule and traveling thousands of kilometers to meet Koreans who had enlisted in the Soviet army, he thought it was much better to deal with the proud Koreans than to deal with the crooked Chinese.

After meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Shigenori Togo, Ambassador to Japan Smethanin headed to the residence of the embassy.
The Japanese seemed to have mixed feelings about the Soviet Union that they had no idea about. emotion? mistaken? Anyway, whatever it was, it was good.
“I don’t know what you’re thinking… .”
Are they afraid of the Soviet Union? Or do you despise it?
If not, are you trying to lure him into an alliance? Or are you trying to conquer it later?
The fact that the Soviet Union was now taking a lower stance seemed to judge that the Soviet Union was afraid of Japan.
You might think so. If the goods coming from America were cut off by Japan, the war in Europe would be quite difficult.
However, according to the information gathered, the Japanese army was not very strong.
One million “elite” Kwantung forces were constantly being consumed by the war on mainland China. In order to attack Southeast Asia, another core division was called up, and the mechanization rate of the core division was extremely low.
It was only the pilot’s proficiency that could rival or overwhelm the Soviet army.
The general secretary was secretly building up the forces of the Far Eastern Military District to liberate the Japanese Empire and their colonies as soon as the war in Europe was over.
In order to prevent an attack from behind, the 30 divisions planted in the Far East were augmented to 50 divisions, and the equipment and organization were secretly changed to units equipped with second-class equipment and training.
Japan was acting as if it had not yet noticed any of these moves, and was making a naive offer to split up China after the war with the United States was over.
“Is it a deception or is it because I really don’t know… Should I ever know?”
The transcript of his conversation with Shigenori will soon be typed and sent to Moscow and the Kremlin.
The general secretary showed a very sensitive reaction to the division of interests in the Far East. Manchuria, a Japanese colony, had to be incorporated into the sphere of influence of the Soviet Union, and the Korean peninsula was made into a pro-Soviet independent country and used as a forward base to contain the Japanese imperialists.
Now, it seemed that the Japanese Empire did not understand the Soviet Union’s intentions at all.
“I think you may have to preside over peace negotiations with the United States. Hahaha!”
Japanese Foreign Minister Shigenori laughed and said, but the Soviet Union had no intention of doing so. Smethanin grew tired of thinking about that sinister laugh.
No, I didn’t even think that America would be defeated in the first place. It’s just a matter of time.
Even if Japan was given a sudden blow, the industrial capacity of the United States was not to be ignored by Japan, which was inferior to the Soviet Union in terms of productivity.
The People’s Committee for Foreign Affairs, which presides over feeding and dressing the people by receiving supplies from that affluent continent as a rental, knew it well enough.
The general secretary’s goal is to destroy Germany before the Japanese Empire falls to the United States and liberate the colonial territories of the Japanese Empire from the hands of the Soviets.
“It takes only two field troops to step down on them!”
“The listing of Chuicorp is an exaggeration now. To be honest, one field force is enough! Uh-huh!”
Commander Chuikov of the Far Eastern Military District asserted that only two field forces could crush the Kwantung Army.
Marshal Zhukov, who had fought the Japanese at Khalkingol, also said with a chuckle that one field army was enough. Of course, the general, who always wanted enough troops to crush the enemy quickly and surely, was pouring 500,000 four field troops into the Far East Military District.
The start of the war is still far away, and Berlin is 1,000 kilometers away.
It would cost thousands of lives to advance one kilometer.
But the Soviet leadership was sure of victory.
