3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but you can find better
This is not at all a bad book; generally very readable, clear and covering the key points and the development of the war, this volume is clearly recommendable for those interested in a general overview of this conflict to an intermidiate level.
Used in conjunction with parts of Nish's other volume "The Anglo-Japanese Alliance" and with Ute Mehnert's "Deutschland,...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant intro to this little known war, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Russo-Japanese War 1904-1905 (Essential Histories) (Paperback)
Great introduction to the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05. A little known modern war with big implications for Russia. Excellent maps. It is pretty clear from reading it why Russia lost.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but you can find better, 18 Oct. 2003
This review is from: The Russo-Japanese War 1904-1905 (Essential Histories) (Paperback)
This is not at all a bad book; generally very readable, clear and covering the key points and the development of the war, this volume is clearly recommendable for those interested in a general overview of this conflict to an intermidiate level.
Used in conjunction with parts of Nish's other volume "The Anglo-Japanese Alliance" and with Ute Mehnert's "Deutschland, Amerika und die Gelbe Gefahr", you can form a very detailed picture of the conflict, the issues at stake and the large contextual frame involving all the major powers, gaining from greater precision and much wider perspective than you can obtain from this book alone. And, of course, if you can't read German, well, though; go and learn it! There is a (scholarly) world beyond the borders of the anglophone states, so get used to resistance to Anglo-saxon cultural imperialism!
