Description

This picture was taken in Fukishimachi, Manchuria, and represents a number of Japanese reserves who had just landed and were on their way to the front to replace the thousands of their comrades who, under the command of Oyama, Kuroki and Nodzu, were driving the Russians northward, nearer the boundary line of Siberia and further and further away from Port Arthur. At Liaoyang the battle had raged ten days along a front of one hundred miles. The solid Russians had withstood the enthusiastic onslaught of the Japanese without wavering. Again and again the little yellow men had hurled themselves against the Russian guns and bayonets, only to fall back bleeding out of a thousand wounds and leaving hundreds of dead at every point, until Kuroki succeeded in turning the enemy's flank and compelled him to retire. These reserves were to fill the gaps death had mowed in the regiments.
