This book is probably the most vivid eye-witness account of the battle and is based not only on the authors personal view of the action, but it also records the experiences of several survivors from other Russian ships. Before describing the battle itself, the author recounts in detail the events during the long voyage out to the Far East, and offers an extremely perceptive and well-observed account of life on the lower-deck in the Imperial Russian Navy.

The vivid and dramatic first-hand accounts describing the horrific conditions on board the Russian ships as they were deluged by a hail of accurate gunfire by the Japanese fleet includes some of the most poignant and harrowing narratives describing a sea battle ever written.
