The Battle of Yinkou also known as Niuzhuang (Newchwang March 1895).
Striking illustration from the Sino-Japanese War of Lieutenant Colonel Imada and other soldiers overtaking a Chinese gun emplacement above the fortress at Niuzhuang (Newchwang). One wounded officer has fallen to his knee in the snow, clutching his side as another soldier rushes up to assist him. At left, a fallen enemy lies face down beside a cannon, smoke still issuing from the barrel. Additional troops hurray up the hillside, while the battle rages at the fortress below, clouds of smoke billowing upwards.
A dramatic scene, nicely composed and detailed, with fine bokashi shading in the wintry grey sky.
