Abstract : The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 is an example of how developing a desired end state and termination conditions can facilitate war termination. It is also an example of the complex nature of peace negotiation. By studying the 'textbook' process the Japanese followed, U.S. war planners can gain insight into termination. By studying the way the Russians reversed their military defeat into a political coup, war planners, can design more effective operational and strategic war plans.
