Wrong illustration ?[edit]

It is worrying that no author seems to read Japanese to understand the original titles. The English one seems wrong to me because

  1. The troops that capitulate wear German uniforms, and
  2. Blagoveshchensk is not a sea but a river harbor.

So, the illustration can not show the surrender of Blagoveshchensk.

In fact, it seems to be a Japanese propaganda picture showing the German capitulation of Tsingtao. The similarity to this illustration comeing from the following book is telling. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c3/Tsingtao_battle_lithograph_1914.jpg

The picture in question has an English caption at the bottom, which specifically says that the depicted scene is the occupation of Blagoveshchensk. It'd be nice to get a confirmation from someone who can read Japanese, though.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); February 21, 2011; 14:28 (UTC)
