Abstract:

"Large numbers of British military and naval officers as well as journalists and others observed the Russo-Japanese War from close quarters. But there was one journalist in particular, the Times correspondent, Lionel James, who made war-reporting history by gaining access to the conflict zone of the war at sea and reporting by wireless as the action happened from a specially chartered ship, the Haimun." "The full details of this remarkable and highly dangerous exploit have been carefully pieced together from official Times records and other sources by Peter Slattery and recorded here for the first time, including the story of how the vital 180-foot timber wireless mast was built on the British-leased treeless promontory of Weihaiwei on the China coast."--Jacket.
