Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the reinterpretation of the Ottoman neutrality during the Russo-Japanese War. As in much of the rest of the world, the Russo-Japanese War was also followed with great interest by the public, and with close attention by the government in Turkey. A translation of an article from a Romanian newspaper on Turkish public opinion concerning the war and the dispatch of a Red Crescent team to the Russian army demonstrates that, by that time the preparations for the execution of the plan proceeded at least to the nomination of the personnel, it was known by, or made known, to the press. Additional importance of the article was that it also stated that the medical team was organized exclusively for the Russian army, in response to the previous act of goodwill of the tsar during the Turko-Greek War of 1897.

Keywords: Ottoman neutrality; Red Crescent team; Russian army; Russo-Japanese War; Turkey
