The tide at sunrise; a history of the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-1905 by Denis Warner( Book )

31 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Russo-Japanese War was fought in the waters of the Yellow Sea and the Straits of Tsushima that divide Japan from Korea, and in the mountains of Manchuria, borrowed without permission from China. It was the first war to be fought with modern weapons. The Japanese had fought the Chinese at sea in 1894 and had gained a foothold in Manchuria by taking control of Port Arthur. In 1895, however, Japan was forced to abandon its claims by the Russian fleet's presence in the Straits of Tsushima. Tsar Nicholas had obtained a window to the East for his empire and Japan had been humiliated. Tensions between the two countries would rise inexorably over the next decade. Around the world, no one doubted that little Japan would be no match for the mighty armies of Tsar Nicholas II. Yet Russia was in an advanced state of decay, the government corrupt and its troops inept and demoralized. Japan, meanwhile, was emerging from centuries of feudal isolation and becoming an industrial power, led by zealous nationalist warlords keen to lead the Orient to victory over the oppressive West. From the opening surprise attack on the Russian fleet at Port Arthur in 1904, the Japanese out-fought and out-thought the Russians. This is a definitive account of one of the pivotal conflicts of the twentieth century whose impact was felt around the world
The sacred warriors : Japan's suicide legions by Denis Warner( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperial Japan, in WWII, had become a shogunate dominated by the ancient samurai code of honor--that it is better to die than surrender. Vice Admiral Ugaki's fanatical suicide squad known as the "Divine Wind" would stave off defeat by giving even their lives. We also read about Admiral Onishi, a drinker and a gambler, and Lieutenant Seki obedient and loyal but tormented. Author, Warner, was a war correspondent aboard a ship that suffered 2 Kamidaze onslaughts and Commander Sadao Seno sub commander, vividly bring this story to life. We read here of a manned torpedo on its path to destruction, for the glory of Japan. Hear interviews from both sides of the conflict along with the impact and horror of attacks including chemical and biological weapons
Certain victory : how Hanoi won the war by Denis Warner( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 30 April 1975, the tanks of the People's Army of North Vietnam burst through the gates of Independence Palace in Saigon. The long war was over. Not with Guns Alone is a moving and explosive account of how Hanoi won the war. There was not just one war, however, and in taking the reader from the break-up of French Indo-China thirty years before the fall of Saifon. Denis Warner details the multiplicity of wars and changes in the international scene. Although many of Warner's revelations will cause diplomatic shockwaves, the bok is no tract. The carefully-documented narrative moves from one side to another in telling the hitherto untelleable : the man who killed President Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963, the Australian intelligence officer's supressed prediction of the Tet offensive, Australia's involvement with the C.I.A., Hanoi's pressure on Canberra in the closing days of the war, Nixon's private correspondence with President Thieu, Washington's broken promises. Using the detailed battle report of General Van Tien Dung, Chief of Staff of the People's Army of North Vietnam, Warner takes us behind the scenes of the Politburo meetings in Hanoi, and to Dung's final command post outside Saigon. Finally, Warner looks at what has happened since the end of the war : in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, and concludes that Australia has failed under both Liberal and Labor governments to come to terms with its environment. An eminently readable acconut of the past, present and future of South-East Asia by one of the world's most distinguished correspondents in the region. -- Inside cover

Disaster in the Pacific : new light on the Battle of Savo Island by Denis Warner( Book )

Book answers many questions about the disaster that have never before been addressed. The Warners verify that an Australian pilot on the morning of 8 August spotted the approaching Japanese fleet and radioed a warning that was received immediately by Allied commanders and the Japanese. Why, then, did Samuel Eliot Morison in his massive official history of the naval war state that the pilot failed to break radio silence? Why did Admiral Fletcher pull his protective
