The Russian naval defeat at Tsushima The definitive history of the Russo-Japanese war. The Russians were wrong-footed from the start, fighting in Manchuria at the end of a 5,000 mile single track railway; the Japanese were a week or so from their bases.

The Russian naval defeat at Tsushima The definitive history of the Russo-Japanese war. The Russian command structure was hopelessly confused, their generals old and incompetent, the Tsar cautious and uncertain. The Russian naval defeat at Tsushima was as farcical as it was complete. The Japanese had defeated a big European power, and the lessons for the West were there for all to see, had they cared to do so.

The war which caused the "Russian Bear" to tumble and the "Rising Sun" of Japan to begin its ascendancy in the East has long deserved the full and vivid analysis which Richard Connaughton here presents

The war which caused the "Russian Bear" to tumble and the "Rising Sun" of Japan to begin its ascendancy in the East has long deserved the full and vivid analysis which Richard Connaughton here presents. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of military history, modern history and politics.

Since the late 1980s, the end of the Cold War has been heralded and the emergence of a new post-Cold War . The Russo-Japanese conflict was Japan’s most significant experience of war up until the disaster of 1937–45.

The Russo-Japanese conflict was Japan’s most significant experience of war up until the disaster of 1937–45. It influenced all shades of political thought in Japan, almost certainly having a greater effect than in Russia, where the government committed a far lower proportion of its population to war service, and had to contend with domestic revolutionary movements at the same time.

This almost forgotten brutally fought war over Manchuria in 1904–5 with its 300,000 victims is remarkable in many ways: It established . The war was conceived by the Japanese as an offensive war of strategic movements.

This almost forgotten brutally fought war over Manchuria in 1904–5 with its 300,000 victims is remarkable in many ways: It established Japanese colonial rule over Korea and Manchuria (which would have otherwise suffered Russian colonial rule), thus laying the seeds to Japan’s war with China since 1937 and to the Pacific War beginning in 1941. The destruction of the Russian fleet and Russia’s subsequent domestic turmoil eliminated the country as Britain’s strategic rival and perceived major threat of the last 100 years.

Richard Connaughton's "Rising Sun and Tumbling Bear" is a detailed study of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05, the first war where an Asian power defeated. Connaughton reveals the Russo-Japanese War as a foretaste of the horrors of the 20th-century warfare, with its machine guns, mines, trenches and barbed wire.

The horrors of the First World War - the machine guns, trench tactics, barbed wire and pounding artillery - came as a ghastly surprise to the Generals. Yet they should, and could, have known better. In 1904 Japan and Russia had gone to war for dominance of the East. Journalists and military attaches had made meticulous observations, but the lessons of this dramatic conflict were dismissed as irrelevant. The war which caused the "Russian Bear" to tumble and the "Rising Sun" of Japan to begin its ascendancy in the East has long deserved the full and vivid analysis which Richard Connaughton here presents. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of military history, modern history and politics.
