The Russo Japanese War 1904 1905

SUMMARY ↠ The Russo Japanese War 1904 1905 The Russo Japanese war saw the first defeat of a major European imperialist power by an Asian country When Japanese and Russian expansionist interests collided over Manchuria and Korea the Tsar assumed Japan would never dare to fight However after years of planning Japan launched a surprise attack on the Russian Port A. So as with all Osprey books it has a limited amount of coverage of the actual events but this one is much better than most So much so that while I was reading it I looked up the author and found that I had read a number of books by him mostly from the original Ballantine World in Conflict series And they were books that I remember being impressed with For a uick overview of this early introduction of the Japanese on the world stage this is a great book for that Still limited by the format so no better than a three

SUMMARY ↠ The Russo Japanese War 1904 1905 Sprey Guide To series is a reworking of the popular Essential Histories series now available as non illustrated eBooks at a fantastic low price The maps and text remain the same giving a strong historical overview of some of the most important conflicts and theatres of war from the ancient world through to modern times. That s how books on war should be written I especially liked how they included simple but comprehensible maps to every major military encounter mentioned One of the maps was enclosed few pages later then it should have been but all the others were exactly at their correct place which is worthy of praisenot all military history books pay attention to such detailsworse not all even include mapsHowever the best thing about this book does not exclude the novice You don t need to know literally anything about the actors the political context or the military tech of the era to understand everything written and enjoy reading it In this regard the author has done a superb job Of course if you ARE familiar with all these things so much the better Mind however that there aren t any photos so if you want to have a look at general Nogi s face or if you are interested how the fortifications at port Arthur looked from first person s perspective etc you ll just have to google it

SUMMARY ↠ The Russo Japanese War 1904 1905 Rthur on the Liaoyang Peninsula in 1904 and the war that followed saw Japan win major battles against Russia This book explains the background and outbreak of the war then follows the course of the fighting at Yalu River Sha ho and finally Mukden the largest battle anywhere in the world before the First World War The O. At the turn of the 20th Century the Japanese were concerned about the ownership of Port Arthur in China by Russia and launched an initally un declared war It was unlikely Russia were going to attack Japan and so Japan reuired diplomatic skill to keep the support of the UK and USA Wars in the Far East are rarely known about or talked about outside academic or wargaming circles but Jukes manages to clearly and concisely explain the major movements and battles of this short war which could have been seen as a precursor to the First World War and certainly didn t help the Tsar with his troubles at homeThe Japanese did remarkably well at sea but whilst being victorious on land did lose many soldiers in attempts to take Port Athur As often with this series the brief review of the end of the conlict and it s impact on the countries involved and those further afield is as interesting as the main book itself
