Human Bullets: A Soldier's Story of the Russo-Japanese War
by Tadayoshi Sakurai
Publisher: Houghton, Mifflin 1908
Number of pages: 306

The story was told originally, not for a foreign audience, but to give to his own countrymen a true picture of the lives and deaths, the joys and sorrows, of the men who took Port Arthur. Its enthusiastic reception in Japan, where forty thousand copies were sold within the first year, is the justification of translator and editor in offering it to the American public.
