Which operation came last in World War 2?
I know that the Kwantung Army was defeated on the 2nd of September 1945 during the Soviet Manchurian Strategic Offensive Operation (9th of August - 2nd of September 1945), which brought about the Japanese surrender signed (once again) on the 2nd of September 1945.
Is there any official notion of which operation came last? If so, is this the one?
The Soviets and the Japanese were fighting in the Kuril Islands as late as 4 September 1945. For a somewhat sparse description, that at least has some dates, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_the_Kuril_Islands
