Mirror of Army and Navy Heroes - Handsome portrait from Kiyochika's 1895 series depicting heroes of the Sino-Japanese War with China. His subjects range from courageous enlisted men to seasoned commanding officers, shown on the battlefield or behind the lines, engaged in a variety of activities. These bold designs provide a great contemporary record of the men involved in this historic conflict. A fine choice for a student of military history.
