As Black Dog has already pointed out,we have some criterea that you yourself must meet and I would ask that you read these guidelines: http://www.historum.com/showthread.php?t=5275
If you can meet the requisite criteria, I'm sure you'll find that there are numerous members here who are willing and more than capable of helping you.
That said, I would think a useful place for you to start would be, if you can, to explain why you are 'pretty sure the Soviet Union was eager to declare war on Japan, not help them out'? Any elucidation on that would be a big step in the right direction.
