Do you know Sea of Japan sea fight in the Russo-Japanese War? A Japanese combined fleet crashes into a Russian Baru-like fleet and is the fight that Japan delivered dramatic victory to. This victory was dripped by the effort of many people and the rare good luck. Then I will return a hand on the watch in 1905.
I scraped up a Russian naval war vessel in Europe to destroy a Japanese combined fleet, and tsar Nicolai II sent the Baru-like fleet to Japan.
I was led by the Roge strike wen ski admiral who was a commander in chief and departed from re-bowman Port. I did the Great Navigation that went half round the earth and came over to Japan. It may be said that it showed the presence as the navy country to have let a voyage succeed while having various difficulty.
The Baru-like fleet which let you leave supply ship such as the geordie in Shanghai is contained in a military manoeuvre. The destination is Vladivostok.
There were three routes that a Baru-like fleet could take. It is Tsushima Channel, Tsugaru Strait, three of the La Perouse Strait.
It was Tsushima Channel that the passage is simple, but the Japanese combined fleet which is the main force of the enemy is more likely to wait in fact.
One and the information about the route that a combined fleet wraps Tsugaru Strait, Soya Channel with an underwater mine, and are more likely to blockade it are poor and are in danger of running out of fuel and the stranding in some cases.
The Roge strike wen ski admiral chose the Tsushima Channel passage. Because Russia was advantageous with the force of the battleship when I analyzed a force of the both Japan and Russia, it would be expected that Vladivostok could enter it whether it was several ships of the battleship.
Where a Baru-like fleet came over from in one Japan was national subject of concern. The samurai who was supposedly Ryoma Sakamoto stood in the dream of the Emperor Meiji. There is such a story with (good), too.
The Major Staff Officer strategy predecessor Masayuki Akiyama of the combined fleet headquarters classified the Sea of Japan to Tsushima Channel – Vladivostok finely and worked out a minute strategy that back geo-の seven steps minded.
I unified the combined fleet headquarters by ambush operation at Tsushima Channel, but I can never get the news of the Baru-like fleet, and it is unknown. I can hold Tsushima Channel when I count it backward from conventional voyage speed.
Only time gradually passes. [the Baru-like fleet may invade it secretly from Tsugaru Strait or Soya Channel not Tsushima Channel?] The combined fleet headquarters holds a meeting while doubt deepens. Since an enemy’s condition is unknown, the Operation Masayuki Akiyama predecessor starts an opinion whether should move to the Noto offing. However, one major general called Hayao Shimamura was late for a meeting and spoke it in this way. [a motor launch is delayed in stormy weather and was late, but the Baru-like fleet is similar, too?] と.
As a result, the indication of the Major General Hayao Shimamura was right if I looked. As for the Baru-like fleet, the bottom of a ship had one cup of seaweed at the voyage of the long way and greatly dropped speed.
However, there was not knew it, quitting it in the meeting, and, in the case of enemy’s condition ignorance, the combined fleet inclined to moving to the Noto offing.
And May 27 of the fate comes over.
The combined fleet picked up a naval officer on the merchant ship which I commandeered and assumed it a converted cruiser for reconnaissance. One ship of the inside is the Shinano-maru of Nippon Yusen. In an early morning before 6:00 a.m., the Shinano-maru discovers a Baru-like fleet. The Colonel Narikawa of the captain is prepared for it at the same time to be mad with joy.
The battleship that a partner is the strongest in the world, the Shinano-maru are only the merchant ships which do not have the armor. I do not have standing of one if I receive bombardment. It is the seaweed of the sea in several minutes. The Colonel Narikawa makes up his/her mind to continue hitting it until a location and the action of the Baru-like fleet are attacked and sunk with 36 sets of no electric equipments in the combined fleet headquarters. The correct information from the Shinano-maru was right Tennyuu for Staff Officer Masayuki Akiyama.
[I watch a hostile craft and, at the report, am going to destroy this.] It is today weather serenity, but have it a wave high;]
This telegraphic message that was famous was born in this way.
Strangely, the Baru-like fleet of a discovered side did not interfere with an action of the Shinano-maru. I am said to have avoided that a figure is disturbed by pursuit. Without [hostile craft looking] where the Shinano-maru rose from affecting a Baru-like fleet to have been received.
One combined fleet headquarters presents an active state. The main force begins to move toward the meeting with the Baru-like fleet, and Izumi of the third prize cruiser succeeds Shokusetsu action of the Shinano-maru, and the Baru tick fleet approaches destined Tsushima Channel.
Therefore one strange event happened.
Fearless crossed in front of enemy that the military unit which Major Kantaro Suzuki who served the commander of the destroyer led knew the correct course of the Baru-like fleet. (Kantaro Suzuki becomes the Prime Minister of the Great Japanese Empire last later.)
I mistake the Baru-like fleet to see this when I wrapped the course with an underwater mine and it is big and destroys the battle formation. The Roge strike wen ski admiral is going to revise it, but, from the feeling of strain of the battlefield, an order does not go well. As this confused state, I will crash into a combined fleet.
As for the Baru-like fleet, a meeting fights against a combined fleet before 2:00 p.m. Because I came over from the southwest, in this situation, in the combined fleet, the Baru-like fleet passes each other from the northeast. The which I shook off is a victory than I fight against a combined fleet because a purpose of the Roge strike wen ski admiral is to let the main force of the Baru-like fleet enter port to Vladivostok.
I judged that the armor of the new star battleship could tolerate it even if I got bombardment and was going to speed straight it.
It is a big turn head by the Admiral Heihachiro Togo in the face of the enemy to have changed this situation. It is the fearless tactics to centralize bombardment in the top warship while blocking the course of the Baru-like fleet by making a U-turn at last-minute distance. I will show the defenseless side, and the combined fleet is remarkably disadvantageous if I turn in the face of the enemy. The combined fleet really suffers many damage just after a head in a time.
However, the rain of the cannonball poured into the Baru-like fleet as soon as it became the battle formation that was advantageous to the combined fleet. I used the Shimose’s gunpowder that the cannonball of the Japanese Navy caused a fire than the hard and strong cannonball which made a hole in the armor of the hostile craft and could not fight, and to drive. An incendiary in the back is near. Therefore the battleship of the Baru-like fleet did not sink, but lost ability for battle steadily.
In that way it is Admiral Heihachiro Togo who pushed forward the destruction of the Baru-like fleet smoothly, but discovers strange movement in one ship of the battleship of the Baru tick fleet. I changed a course, and it seemed whether you were going to escape. Six ships of the first fleet which was lower than Admiral Heihachiro Togo stopped bombardment in order to suppress the point more and began fleet exercise.
However, subsequent Admiral kamimura gave it an order for the continuation of the bombardment in defiance of this order. As for what Baru-like fleet, a rudder was destroyed not a course change and was not able to only go straight ahead. When it was only five ships of the second fleet, it became the numerical inferiority with force differences and Baru-like fleet, but the Uemura admiral continued attacking it without being daunted. When I noticed a mistake, the first fleet of the Admiral Togo left it distantly, and time has suffered before I met again.
When the Baru-like fleet headquarters gave a motivation here and counterattacked it, I might permit the escape of the Baru-like fleet.
The battleships of the Baru-like fleet which lost a force were sunk steadily by the torpedo of the destroyer of the combined fleet.
The Roge strike wen ski admiral gets injured and made lifting on a destroyer, but one strange event gets up again here. Roge strike wen ski admiral became a captive of the Japanese Navy. It is very unusual for a defeated general of the sea fight to become a captive. Mostly this is because it succeeds in escaping or becomes the seaweed of the sea.
The state of the destroyer of the Russian side is strange when the destroyer which I picked up Roge strike wen ski admiral on becomes the discovery されていざ war on a destroyer of the Japanese Navy. When a young first lieutenant called Tsukamoto had a telescope of latest Carl Zeiss in those days and used it, the Roge strike wen ski admiral gave a flag of surrender of the surrender. The Roge strike wen ski admiral would go out to the seaweed of the sea if I did not have this telescope. The First Lieutenant Tsukamoto had Admiral Heihachiro Togo show this Carl Zeiss telescope and I was impressed and seemed to purchase it at own expense. That it was a share for salary one month of the first lieutenant.
It was a chance that Roge strike wen ski admiral became a captive and survived. The Roge strike wen ski admiral was accommodated by the navy Hospital in Sasebo and received a visit of the Admiral Heihachiro Togo. Last arrival of the Great Navigation that went half round the earth is to have been a sickbed of Sasebo.
It became long, but the mistakes occurred frequently, but there is the flexibility that recovery makes it in the Japan side and, in the Sea of Japan sea fight said to be complete victory, thinks that the thing that there was not divided victory or defeat into the Russia side.
