Chapter Summary

The Russo-Japanese War fundamentally altered both the scope and intent of Russian war planning in the Eurasian continent, creating both internal tensions as well as concrete reforms that were eventually to fundamentally affect the manner in which the Russian army also performed in 1914. Fedor F. Palitsyn and General Mikhail Alekseev's report itself came in the wake of a series of alarming intelligence reports that appeared to indicate that the Russian Empire was increasingly surrounded and threatened from all sides, particularly in the south. The Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907 and the associated treaties with Japan that followed were perceived by Izvolskii as a means to free Russia's hands from Far Eastern entanglements and to concentrate state attention more effectively on Near Eastern affairs (the Balkans and the Straits), which he perceived as the site of Russia's true national interests.

Keywords: Eurasian continent; Fedor F. Palitsyn; Izvolskii; Mikhail Alekseev; Russian Empire; Russo-Japanese War
