A well-written and lavishly-illustrated account of the naval aspects of the Russo-Japanese War. Forczyk provides fine insight into the technological developments that led to the rise of the pre-dreadnaught battleship as the ultimate (though very temporary) arbiter of naval power. While he give less attention to the roles of politics, leadership, and training than technology, they all get their due in this well-balanced brief account.

Very decent analysis of a microcosm of the Battle of Tsushima. Good technical information, decent drawings, excellent analysis. I enjoyed it.

Well written and lavishly illustrated. Technical details are kept readable without being overwhelming. Worth going into an historian's library while enjoyable for the casual reader.
