More About This Book

Overview

This new book covers the Sino-Japan Naval War 1894-1895, a little-known part of late 19thC naval history.

The First Sino–Japanese War (1 August 1894 – 17 April 1895) was fought between Qing Dynasty China and Meiji Japan, primarily over control of Korea. After more than six months of continuous successes by the Japanese army and naval forces, as well as the loss of the Chinese port of Weihai, the Qing leadership sued for peace in February 1895.

The background, operations and outcomes are described in detail. All the ships involved, both Japanese and Chinese, are described and illustrated with full technical specifications. Profusely illustrated with scale drawings, maps, drawings and rare photos.

REVIEWS

Photos, annotations, maps, charts, tables, bibliography, index and transliteration notes season MMP's superb study. Five appendices recap participating vessels, naval artillery, torpedoes, comparative service ranks, and Japanese ship commanders. And a concluding section showcases 1:350 starboard drawings of 36 Chinese and Japanese warships... The brief, bitter Sino-Japanese naval war forged the tactical and technological foundation of Japan's victory over Russia a decade later. "China," the author observes, "practically became a quasi-colony" of European imperialists – and entered a half-century of "internal/social unrest". Likewise, Japan's expansionist ambitions only ended with its total defeat in World War II – 50 years on.

Start tracing those paths to Nanking, Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima and Mao. Get this terrific tome.

    Sino-Japanese Naval War 1894-1895 by Piotr Olender; 225 pages; 2

    Sino-Japanese Naval War 1894-1895 by Piotr Olender; 225 pages; 24 chapters; many photographs; tables of the characteristics of the ships of both fleets and side view drawings
    Although the title says naval War this book is about the whole of the Sino-Japanese war with emphasis on the naval aspects. It starts with a synopsis of the socio-political-military histories of China and Japan for the 30 years prior to the war and then gives the immediate causes for the war and finally discusses the war itself.
    The development, organization, personnel, and capabilities of both fleets are given. While the Japanese fleet was well led and aggressive, the Chinese fleet was severely hampered
