I must confess to always feeling a guilty sense of glee when I read about this battle: the Russians getting thumped by a bunch of what they no doubt referrred to as 'primitives'.  Sorry, not very Chrisitian I know.  More importantly, I suppose, arguably one of the first truly 'modern' naval battles.

Hello!

A war, that will not be discussed so often today.

If someone, who speaks german, is interested in that war, I can recommend the following book:

Graf E. zu Reventlow: Der Russisch-Japanische Krieg (Army edition, 1906, 496 pages)

This looks like an interesting book.  Does it include any after-action reports on Russian ships that went to Tsingtau seeking repairs and medical aid?

Hello Claudius!

No, the last chapter is about the conquer of Sachalin.

But, this is the army-edition. There is a larger edition in three volumes, maybe you´ll find it there.
