Description
 
Constantine Pleshakov (au). On May 14, 1905, for the first time, an Asian nation defeated a European power. Russiaís total defeat at Tsushima, the deciding battle of the Russo-Japanese war, confirmed Japan as a rising superpower & would-be ruler of the East. In a single day the Russian fleet was annihilated, while Japan lost only 3 destroyers. It was the first modern naval battle, employing all the new technology of destruction. The defeat at Tsushima was the last & greatest of many indignities incurred by the Russian fleet, which had traveled halfway around the world to reach the battle, dogged every mile by bad luck & misadventure.  Despite its importance & its drama, the history of the Battle of Tsushima has long been neglected in the West.
