The Russo-Japanese war was also the last conflict in which the media had a totally free hand. WWI followed nine years later and brought with it strict government censorship in every warring nation, creating the conflict between press freedom and national interest which is still unresolved today.


Reviews about The short victorious war;: The Russo-Japanese conflict, 1904-5 (4):
Silly Dog
Very well written account of this war. I have read all that I can on this war in both English and Japanese. There is painfully little out there in English readily available on this very important - some would say, most important event of the 20th Century. Walder's style is very much a product of historical writing in the 60s and 70s, - I mean this in a good sense that he writes very economically and chooses his words well to convey meaning and full the narrative with life.

The book is incredibly well researched primarily from English sources, but he that, in this case adds to the work with a good emphasis on the international implications of the event, particularly its importance to Japan's ally the British, but also how the European nations views both Japan and Russia at this time. Of particular interest are the actions of the Kaiser, ever ready to send his cousin Nickolas II on an adventure in the East and away from Europe. The work lacks the details of the Warner's work -"The Tide at Sunrise" (which is perhaps the best account of the war in English) - but does include just enough to lend excitement and does not exclude key events in its now-considered-slender-300-page volume.

Dramatis persona are also give good detail as well as the final months of the war and the desperate outcome so indicative of Japanese future tactics. A very good read. This book should make up the current triumvirate of books in English on this war, along with Denis and Peggy Warner's "The Tide at Sunset" (Still the best, but hard to get and expensive) and Conaughton's "The War of the Tumbling Bear and Rising Sun" (a much more analytical history of this war).

I have been reading the literature of the 1904-5 Russo-Japanese War for many years----both in Russian and Japanese. And low and behold, a superbly researched and well written book in the King's English by David Walder a former British MP. Excellent research, brilliant writing, and mesmerizing details. Should be read again by military historians because it makes Alistair Home's Hubris stupendously credible.

Clear, concise account of obscure subject, a little bit of western bias evident, but overall a very nice work.

This is a quick-moving history of the Russo-Japanese war which. almost exactly a century ago, gave a sort of preview to some of the themes of the first half of the 20th Century. With many similarities in tactics to WWI, this war also can be seen as the first successful example of the colonized nations fighting back to regain their pride and autonomy after the centuries in which European conquest spread around the world.
The author is interested mainly in the military dimension, and the major combats by land and sea are covered. Critical events flowing from the war - the Portsmouth peace conference, the effect of Russia's defeat on the revolution of 1905, and the effect of Japan's victory in China and elsewhere in Asia, all are mentioned but inadequately discussed.
The writing is good and, with the inherently dramatic story being told, makes for a highly readable book. As history it suffers from the fact that the author apparently knows neither Russian nor Japanese, and has used sources in neither language. Direct accounts of the major battles by the men who fought, which surely exist in both languages, would have greatly improved the book. Considering the emphasis in this book on military tactics, the maps included are inadequate both in number and detail.
In spite of these faults, the author has succeeded in his goal of writing an interesting and useful history of these important events for the general reader.
