(p.238) 8 The Russo-Japanese War
Britain and the Last Tsar


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Russo-Japanese War, which brought about the decisive turning point in Anglo-Russian relations between 1894 and 1914. Before the war, Russia had repeatedly rejected British overtures for a general agreement between the two countries. After the war, as a result of military defeat, Russia attempted to accommodate the Great Powers. The Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907 was the eventual result. The Russo-Japanese War also marked the nadir of Anglo-Russian relations. Without skillful management and good fortune, the struggle in the Far East could have resulted in a general global conflict between an Anglo-Japanese coalition and the Franco-Russian pairing.

Keywords:   Russo-Japanese War, Anglo-Russian relations, Great Powers, Anglo-Russian Convention, Far East, Anglo-Japanese coalition
