Railways and the Russo-Japanese War
The book explores the nexus between railways and the Russo-JapaneseWar (1904–1905) – the first modern war and one in which the railwaysplayed a key part.This volume examines some of the key dimensions of the Russo-Japan-ese war, and most notably how uncomfortably technological and humandimensions of Russia’s war effort interleaved in the course of the conflict.The authors demonstrate how advantages that might have been built uponwere squandered, blunt traditional forms and habits were applied inpolitically tortuous contexts, and technological edge was negated by theinternal turmoil of a country unable to tame a process of modernisation.Demonstrating the vital role railways played in the Russo-JapaneseWar, generally considered to be the first modern, technological conflict,and a precursor to the First World War, this book will appeal to studentsof the Russo-Japanese War, Russian history, military history and inter-national history in general.
