MTTXMCS THB RECORC-MAKEB^ ) At the Battle of Mukden, it would seem that about 750,000 men-aooordinir to soma Japanese estimates 830,000—went inta the fight. The nearest approach to them stupendous figures, says CaaseiFs "History of the Baaaa-Japanese War," that oocurs previously to the Russo- Japanese War is afforded by the eases of the Battle of Leipsio in 1813, of Kdniggrato ia 1866, and Gravelotto in 1870, ia each of which battles from 400,000 to 430,000 men were engaged. ,At Solferino, in 1850,. the total forces on both sides aggregated nearly 300,000; at Wagram, 1809, they amounted to 280,000; at Borodino, 1812, to 250,000; and at Jena, 1806, to 200,000. According to revised and authoritative Japanese calcula- tions, there may have beea as many as 460,000 in the fighting lino at Liao-yang, and in that at the Battle of the Sha-ho. But from even the last-quoted figures to those given for the Mukden struggle there is a very long jump, and the last-quoted figures to those given for the Mukden struggle there is a very long jump, and when from mere paper statistics we pasa to an attempt to realise mentally the actual size of the forces engaged, the amazing magnitude of the operations soon begins to impress itself upon the dullest imagination. Again, the extraordinaxr duration of the Mukden battle, largely exceed- ing, as it did, that of tven the long and weary fighting at Liao-yang, has a serious significance. At Borodino the oonflict lasted for twelve and a-half hours, at Wag ram for fourteen hours, and at Leipsic for three days. But what is this com- pared with the struggle at Mukden, which com- menced not later than February 24th, and the immediate objective of which was not reached until March 10th, while the pursuit to Tig-ling occupied another five or six daysl
