IMHO,it is wrong to say that the battle of Kalkhin Gol decided the Japanese to avoid in the future any fighting with the Soviets :that's the old-fahioned,obsolete way of thinking(I thought it was ericated) that's giving individual battles an importance they never had :if Japan was going south and not north,it was 1) because there was nothing usefull in Siberia 2) because ,from the Japanese POV,there were obliged to go south,because of the US embargo .
