Makarov was not only one of Russia's best admirals, but had a reputation as an explorer in the Arctic.

I haven't been able to find many graphic things concerning the Russo-Japanese war, but this is great!

If memory serves he was one of the more competent Russian Admirals. Very nice picture.

Does the memory rust
As the old metal groans
In the dark crimson dust
The sea makes of their bones...

One of the greatest geniuses of naval warfare died that day.

The irony is that the guy who suggested sticking the mines there (Saneyuki Akiyama) was a big fan of old man Makarov.

Not good with colours? This is fantastic, you can almost hear the Banzai cries of the victorious warriors of Zipang! Kimi ga Yo!!

Ok a bit over the top, but it is a very good painting.
