Ahoy Shipmates!!!

Join me for the story of a often forgotten battle in an often forgotten war, the Battle of Chemulpo during the Russo-Japanese War.

In conjunction with the feature we also begin a series of reviews based on the Russian side of the battle by D.T. [DrWho_2]

Simply stunning!

Thank you for this in depth article about the battle and the involved russian ships.
The writing is superbly balanced giving all relevant information.

I am kind of speachless at the moment and wished I could write half as good as you do.

Again, thank you so much for the efforts and dedication!

An easy to read piece of history here, and it makes the ships we build so much more interesting, and somehow gives them life and meaning.

Very enjoyable, Jim.

Best regards,

Today I posted the last review in the series of reviews dealing with the Battle of Chemulpo.

I would like to take this time to thank Dariush [Dr_Who2] for taking his time to do this for MSW. Those of us who have written reviews and features for the site know how much time is required. So, writing eight was a major undertaking.

Thank you all for your support and comments.
