Russian Offensive on Amur and Sungari 1900

Post by jerryasher » 23 Jul 2021 17:32

Can anyone recommend a good narrative in English, French, Spanish of the Russian offensives triggered by the "Boxer---Yihetuan" activity. Have not come across an thorough account in English of the May -June 1900 movements of Russian ships and men from Port Arthur to the Peiho River, the attack on June 16-17 at Taku forts is the most thoroughly reported, but the July August movements on the northern rivers of Manchuria is almost a blank. Steamers Odessa and Selenga draw mentions in New York Times of that era. Many thanks in advance.

Many thanks Greg. As always very helpful. I found the jakol citation (Google translation) very helpful and will help me use and understand Sarhansg''s work better. Again many thanks for all you do.
