Spy Duel: Russia - Japan

Image 1 / 1

'Spy Duel: Russia - Japan' is a documentary about the relationship between Russia and Japan from the beginning of the 20th century through the 1920s. At the beginning of the 20th century, Russian Tsar Nicolas II's spies underestimated the strength of Japan, and Far East Russia and Manchuria became flooded with thousands of Japanese agents. Discover how this led to a surprise Japanese attack against the Russian naval base at Port Arthur and a crushing defeat by the Japanese. Then, witness how in the 1920s, the secret police of the Soviet Union (the OGPU) created a bureau aimed at misinforming their opponent.
