Synopsis: This definitive history of the Russo-Japanese War received rave reviews in its first edition-The Economist, for one, called it "A remarkably lively and enjoyable account." As the 100th anniversary of the conflict approaches, Connaughton's fascinating study will receive renewed attention and appeal to both military enthusiasts and the wider history market. In fascinating detail, he reveals the hopeless confusion of the Russian command structure and how the Russian naval defeat at Tsushima was as farcical as it was complete.
About the Author: Colonel Richard Connaughton spent two years as Head of the British Army's Defence Studies, the culmination of a twenty-two year career in the army, retiring in 1992. He now undertakes studies in the politico-military field on an international basis for client governments and the military, and has an intimate knowledge of military and special forces' involvement in the trouble spots of recent years. He has a fierce but charming intellect.
