Mr Richard Barry in Manchuria


Mr Richard Barry in Manchuria



Date Created


When it had become evident that the taking of Port Arthur would be a longer task than any of the Japanese had calculated upon, when the Japanese chief-commander before Port Arthur had resigned himself to the conviction that General Stoessel would defend Port Arthur to the last ditch, and had accordingly laid his plans for four successive phases of the siege, and when, by the capture of 203 Meter Hill, a point of vantage had gained, from which the firing of the big siege guns could be intelligently directed, and when the preparations for the taking of thr two or three most important Russian forts, which still stood in the way of concluding the first phase were finished. Mr. Richard Barry left Port Arthur to find new material for his work in Manchuria, where Oyama and Kuroki were hammering away at Kuropatkin.
