Russo-Japanese War

The Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905) was a conflict that grew out of the rival imperialist ambitions of Imperial Russia and Japan in Manchuria and Korea. It resulted in a surprise victory by Japan, establishing Japan as a major world power. Popular discontent in Russia following the defeat led to the Russian Revolution of 1905. Discontent among Japanese over the lack of territorial gains led to an erosion of good feelings towards the United States.
