Just finished “The Tsar’s Last Armada” by Constantine  Pleshakov .It covers the voyage of the Russian Fleet to Tsu Shima. It is good on the politics and the actual voyage, together with internal issues within the fleet. The weakest part is the description of the battle itself, particularly as there isn’t an actual plan of the battle. It also covers the subsequent lives of the main protagonists. He’s drawn on a lot of Russian archives for it.

One particularly interesting issue he mentions is that if the original squadron had not had to wait for other old and effectively useless coast defence battleships they would PDF’s have arrived before the Japanese Fleet had repaired all the damage it had suffered from battle or wear and tear.

Overall I’d recommend it if you’ve also got or read something else on the actual battle.
