Untitled[edit]

Following the war naming conventions that the agressor is listed first, shouldn't it be the Japanese-Soviet Border Wars? Could somebody comment on this or change the name of the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.107.192.141 (talkcontribs)

Hmm, I wasn't aware of this convention, and wars like Iran-Iraq war, Chadian-Libyan conflict, Phillipine-American War, Spanish-American War would seem to be examples that defy it. Eleland 19:51, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

On the contrary, most of the wars you named follow the formality: Spanish American = Spanish blew up Maine (supposedly) Phillipine - American = Phillipine insurgency against americans Chadian - Libyan = Chadian civil war spills over into Libya. Not sure about Iran Iraq Yarilo2 22:34, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Well... Franco-Prussian, Spanish-American, Russo-Japanese, Sino-Japanese, Greco-Italian, Iran-Iraq: aggressor placed second. Anglo-Spanish, Anglo-Dutch, Greco-Turkish, Anglo-Boer: aggressor placed first.

I would say the order is more a matter of aesthetics, with the shorter or more easily adjectivized name generally going first. Rwestera (talk) 00:04, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Scope and references[edit]

This article lacks references. I searched some books and they scope the war as being between 1938 to 1939, see the table in here. Adding the 1945 clash seems to be synthesis. --Martintg (talk) 02:35, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Absolutely support. BTW, I believe I was able to provide the sources supporting the Martintg's statement on the Pacific war talk page[1].--Paul Siebert (talk) 16:08, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Two battles or more?[edit]

The article mentions big two battles, one in 1938 and one in 1939. But my questions is: Was there more violent clashes? Many border conflicts are typified by an endless exchange of small arms fire over hundreds of kilometers, stretching over years. Also in many such conflicts are full of raids into enemy territory. Or even smaller battles. Was there any such incidents between Soviet-Union and Japan in the 1938-39 war or was the two battles all there was?
