INTRODUCTION

‘After all, we have come out for this war only’ declared Captain James Bruce Jardine, one of the first of a small group of British army officers recently attached to the British Legation in Tokyo to study Japanese.1 This statement was all the more remarkable for having been made on the 2nd of January 1904, over a month before the Russo-Japanese War formally began. His confidant, Dr Erwin von Baelz, was suitably impressed with this apparent perspicacity, and noted in his diary that ‘obviously, then, four months ago, England already regarded the war as inevitable’.2

The preparedness of Jardine and Bannerman in Tokyo was echoed by another member of this pioneering group of Language Officers, Captain Berkeley Vincent, who, only two days before, had travelled to Pusan to spend three weeks on some unspecified ‘special service’ in the Korean peninsula, and who, after the Russo-Japanese conflict finally broke out on the 10th of
February 1904, would be in Korea again to observe unofficially the landing of Japanese troops at Chemulpo.3 Vincent would be the first of many such British military observers in the field, and from this early, undeclared phase of the Russo-Japanese War until the formal post-war demobilisation of Japanese troops in Manchuria almost two years later, some twenty-nine officers of the British army, including three lieutenant-generals, would accompany the Japanese land forces.

Other nations would follow the British example but none would match it. The numerical advantage grudgingly conceded to Britain would be denied to other nations as the Japanese military authorities made strenuous efforts to limit the places available for foreign military and naval observers, and among those who did secure an attachment to the Japanese forces, none had the same level of actual combat experience which their British counterparts had acquired during three decades of colonial wars. In particular, most of the British military observers had experience at varying levels of the Boer War, a startlingly modern conflict which was currently in the course of detailed study and evaluation by the general staffs of the major armies.

The Russo-Japanese War occurred at a time when it was an institutionalised belief among the armed forces of the industrialised world that the observation of other wars offered insights into modern warfare from which they could learn as much as – and sometimes even more than – from their own experience. The American Civil War of 1861–5 and the Franco-Prussian War of
1870–1 were the first wars to attract a significant number of officers from non-belligerent countries, who observed the action from both sides, and the study of both conflicts became an important part of the education of army officers into the early twentieth century. It was not until the Russo-Japanese War over three decades later that the military observer came into his own again. The Boer War of 1899–1902 had attracted its share of attention and a sprinkling of foreign attachés, but it could still be dismissed as a colonial war – albeit an exceptional colonial war – of dubious relevance to the increasingly urgent question of how the next major European war would be fought. The Russo-Japanese War was different: it involved the armed forces of the largest power in Europe, and, although relatively little was known, or indeed expected, of Japan, her army and navy were at least perceived to have the advantages of modern armaments and organisation, making this a more balanced contest than previous wars fought
outside Europe. No other conflict had been observed with such intensity and the Russo-Japanese War marked the apogee of the professional military observer: by its conclusion, over eighty officers from the armed forces of at least sixteen different nations had observed the conflict from both sides.
