[1] "Operation August Storm", as used in Western literature, was not a designation applied by the Soviet Union. This name was suggested much later after the war by David Glantz's daughter for a presentation at the US Army Staff College. He was looking for a name to call the lecture, and she simply made the observation that it was conducted in August, and begun during a torrential storm. The name found in Soviet literature is the Manchurian Strategic Offensive Operation, referring to the place of origin, as Outer Manchuria located in Soviet territory was the staging for the strategic forces. With thanks to Greg Chalik.
