When, during its retreat after the battle of Liao-yan,1 the Russian Army had succeeded in getting away from the Japanese, all its portions continued their march in the general direction on Mukden. On September 6 the main bodies of the Army crossed the Hun-ho. General Kuro-patkin, the Commander-in-Chief, had first intended to conduct the Army straight back to Tie-lin.2 He wished to resume the fight in the position prepared there, to which, from the beginning of the campaign, he had paid special attention, owing to its supposed great defensible capabilities.
