The Battle of Tsushima between the Russians and the Japanese resulted in the greatest naval defeat in one battle in all of recorded history. With their base in Port Arthur on the Chinese coast threatened by the Japanese army and navy, the Russians assembled a fleet of 40 vessels to sail from the Baltic to the Far East to rescue their colony.

This resulted in a fantastic voyage across the world's oceans only to find that as they neared Port Arthur they learned of its fall and so the only course left open to the Russians was to dash the straits of Tsushima to Vladivostock. Instead, they were caught by the Japanese Admiral Togo who destroyed or captured all but two of the Russian ships.
