Japan-China War: On the Regent's Sword
Jukichi Inouye & Kazumasa Ogawa
This part is an account of the activities of the Second Japanese Army on the Kinchow Peninsula for the period from September 15, 1894 through December 1, 1894. It presents the Japanese version of events in the battles of Kinchow, Port Arthur and Talienwan. The preface notes that "...all reference to alleged atrocities at Port Arthur has been avoided as the heated controversy to which they have given rise has not yet subsided and it would be impossible to give an impartial account in the face of contradictory allegations that have been put forward."
This is one in a series of three books by the same author which are illustrated with K. Ogawa collotypes. For more information on the entire series, click here.
