The Russo-Japanese War (8 February 1904 – 5 September 1905) was fought between the Russian Empire and the Empire of Japan over rival imperial ambitions in Manchuria and Korea. The major theatres of operations were the Liaodong Peninsulaand Mukden in Southern Manchuria, and the seas around Korea, Japan, and the Yellow Sea.
This is a war I know little about so hopefully I will learn more via this thread.
I am using some photos from an album titled 'Russo-Japanes War' created by @mineman65
Here is the album of 92 media images
