Japanese attack on a Russian entrenchment, Russo-Japanese War, 1904. Artist: Unknown Featured Print

Japanese attack on a Russian entrenchment, Russo-Japanese War, 1904. Artist: Unknown

Japanese attack on a Russian entrenchment, Russo-Japanese War, 1904. The Russo-Japanese War arose due to the two countries' conflicting territorial ambitions in East Asia. When the Russians reneged on an agreement to withdraw troops from Manchuria, the Japanese embarked on a lengthy siege of the Russian-leased city of Port Arthur in Manchuria. Port Arthur surrendered in January 1905, and a combination of incompetence on the part of Russian commanders and the decisive victory for the Japanese navy at the Battle of Tsushima forced the Russians to the negotiating table. The outcome of the war was Japan gaining effective control of Korea and much of Manchuria. An illustration from Le Petit Journal, 19th June 1904.

Cover for Souvenirs du Siege de Paris, 1870-1871. Artist: Anon

Cover for Souvenirs du Siege de Paris, 1870-1871. After the disastrous defeat of the French at Sedan and the capture of Napoleon III, the Prussians surrounded Paris on 9 September 1870. The French commander, General Trochu, opted to rely on a static defence based on the city's fortifications rather than trying to break through the Prussian encirclement. The Prussians, meanwhile, had no intention of invading the city, relying on a blockade to compel its capitulation. The city held out despite famine and great hardship until a bombardment with heavy siege guns led to its surrender on 28 January 1871. From a private collection.
