With Kuroki in Manchuria.
by [Russo-Japanese War] Palmer, Frederick.
A Near Very Good copy with a scrape to the front cover and a small nick (tear) to rear outer hinge. Binding is sound and the text is clean. President Theodore Roosevelt called Palmer "our best war correspondent," and was the first war correspondent to be awarded the U.S. Army's Distinguished Service Medal. This is Pamler's account of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5 and provides an up close and first person report of the strategies and battles that ensued whereby the Japanese defeated the Russian Army in China. The Russo-Japanese War was "the first great war of the 20th century." It grew out of rival imperial ambitions of the Russian Empire and the Empire of Japan over Manchuria and Korea. The major theatres of operations were Southern Manchuria, specifically the area around the Liaodong Peninsula and Mukden; and the seas around Korea, Japan, and the Yellow Sea. Contains twenty-six illustrations from photographs and three maps
