Japanese to English Translators wanted for Russo Japanese War Documents

In 1907 the Japanese Military translated into Japanese a number of captured Russian Staff Documents dealing with the 1904-05 Russo-Japanese War. The belief is that parts of these documents deal with Russian wargaming pre-, during-, and lessons learned post-, the war.

I’m looking for interested volunteers to translate one or more 20 page blocks of text — or as many pages as they can tolerate.

This is asking a lot, I know, but hopefully the result will be interesting to the wargaming community.

    Three clarifications:

    1. “volunteer” means “unpaid volunteer”!

    2. I will give proper credit to each translator in any possible publication of the material. Volunteers may freely use their own translations, but cannot restrict the use of their translations by others.

    3. The objective of this collaboration is to make this material freely available to the wargaming community.
