This is a photograph illustrated account of the last major series of battles of the Japan China war, the battle of Wei-hai-wei. The remnants of the Chinese Navy were sheltered in Wei-hai-wei. The Japanese Army and Navy closed on Wei-hai-wei and engaged and defeated the Chinese land and sea forces in January through early February of 1895. This book outlines both the land and Naval battles that ensued. The Chinese fleet at Wei-hai-Wei consisted of 15 major naval vessels which included the ironclad battleships Ting-yuen and Chen-yuen and a number of torpedo boats. The Japanese Navy arrayed 25 men-of-war and 16 torpedo boats against the Chinese. Both of the inronclads were destroyed and the Chinese Navy was either destroyed or captured.
