"So many accounts have been written of the war between Russia and Japan that apology may be demanded for adding another to these records. My excuse is that a very limited number of European and American correspondents accompanied the Japanese Army, and that I may claim to be the only correspondent who was with General Kuroki from the Yalu to the Shaho ; and, with my interpreter, Mr. Ito, the only observer, European, American, or Japanese, present at these engagements, and at the last assaults upon and surrender of Port Arthur ... In the opening chapter will be found a short summary of the events that led to the war. It contains matter that may throw a little new light upon some phases of the diplomatic struggle. In the appendix are studies of the Russian and Japanese Armies which were issued as confidential papers before the war"--Prefatory note.
