Chapter Summary

The Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902 was hailed in the Japanese press as a step of huge significance for naval strategy and undoubtedly its acceptance in Britain followed support by Lord Selborne. In the course of the Russo-Japanese War, the network of British agents controlled by the British consulate at Batum to determine whether or not the Russian Army planned to attack Afghanistan and India via Central Asia proved inadequate and had to be reinforced by General Grierson, the new Director of Military Operations, by the dispatch of observers controlled from Berlin who were placed along the main railway lines inside Russia to check the movement of forces eastward. War between Russia and Japan provided the most important test since 1899 of the meaning and application of the concept of neutrality in twentieth century international relations within the context of the wide ranging international legal discussions and agreements at The Hague.
