Russo-Japanese War

by Roshiachan
Hey! This a comic I need to show my history class for my final so it does have story, but yeah mostly historical information,
I still Hope you'll read it tho! :D
Uses Hetalia Character! (btw sorry in advance my style isn't very Hetalia compatible so some of the characters looks weird :P)

After the Boxer Rebellion Russia has control over southern Manchuria, Japan isn't too happy about this and so begins to launch an attack on Russia. Allied with Britain Japan is surprisingly quick in dealing with Russia and the Portsmouth treaty was signed which granted Japan South Manchuria as well as rights in Korea. This once again firmly established Japan's dominance in Asia

Nationalism
The Portsmouth treaty was actually met with angry protesting by Japanese who believed that they should have received more and that the battle was more decisive than it was. Having actually beaten a western power who had threatened them so long spurred nationalist sentiment. This paired with the victory in the Sino-Japanese war gave many Japanese confidence and overall the Russo-Japanese war advanced Japan to imperialism and militarism even more. The Japanese economy also benefited in gaining Manchuria and due to the new resources at hand Japan could develop even faster.

Status!
From the victories in the Sino-Japanese war and the Russo-Japanese war Japan gained status as the dominating country in Asia and respect from the west. However, the west still did not think Japan was equal to them which greatly upset the public.

Portsmouth Treaty
signed September 9th 1905 Gave Japan control of Southern Manchuria and Japan's role of supremacy in Korea was recognized. Russia still had control of Northern Manchuria. Japan also received the Liaotung Peninsula and half the Sakhalin island. The treaty was moderated by the U.S. who favored Japan, both Russia and Japan were exhausted from war and so were both more than happy to sign the treaty.

At the tsushima straits
Japan had an overwhelming naval victory and only 4 Russian ships made it to Vladivostok. Japan now had the upper hand and the Russian political crisis would not let it continue. Japan at this time was also exhausted Financially.

The suez Canal
Russia was heading to Vladivostok and planned to go trough the Suez Canal, however England, due to its alliance with Japan, would not permit Russia through the canal. Because of this Russia had to go around Africa an arduous journey that inevitably opened up the navy for attack.

America and the Russo-Japanese War
Recently Russia had become a threat to American trade and so when war broke out American kept close track of the events, hoping Japan, a new Ally of Britain and thus helpful to America as well, would succeed in eliminating Russia as a rival while still allowing room for America to have trade options in Asia.

Problems in Russia
Russia was experiencing revolts and issues back at home so it was inconceivable, if the czar wanted to retain power, to lose a war against Japan. Many people in Russia were against the war seeing it as a losing battle and wondering what the government thought it was going to do.

Surprise again!
No one expected Russia to be so completely defeated by an Asian nation that had been in isolation only a few hundred years ago. It became apparent that Japan was developing into a powerful country that could compete in the world community.
Russia suffered huge losses in this war

Surprise!!
On February 8th 1904 Japan launched a surprise attack at Port Arthur two days before it actually declared war. The russian Armada was greatly hampered and Japan was given the upper hand early on

England and japan unite!
In 1902 England ended its "splendid isolation" and formed an alliance with Japan. by this alliance either country would only help the other one out if it was attacked by two powers. They also recognized each others interest in China and Japan's interest in Korea.
This gave Japan confidence that if Germany were to support Russia, Japan would not have to face that duo alone.

Boxer Rebellion
The Boxer Rebellion was a rebellion in China that the Chinese government could not quell on its own. Western countries such as the U.S. and Russia had to intervene in order to destroy it. This reflected very badly on China's government who could not control its own people and gave Russia an excuse to occupy Manchuria.

Japan felt threatened by Russia's presence in Manchuria, manchuria was not only necessary for resources but also to protect national security, in sought out allies that could help.

Russia moves into Manchuria
Russia had long been a threat to Japan's interests, recently Russia had begun to expand into Asia. This greatly alarmed Japan because Russia had been backing the anti-Japanese reformers in Korea and had recently begun to build railway lines in South Manchuria
