I know this is the naval section but, was not sure where else to post this. I am writing a research essay for a college class on the Russo-Japanese War and I need some reputable websites to reference. Wikipedia is out according to the professor. I already know about – So, any other good ones?
Thank You

Shouldn't you be referring to books rather than websites? "Reputable website" is often a non sequitur particularly when it comes to history!

This is a WWI site, but contains information germane to 1904-1905 naval topics.

No website, but a book: Rising Sun and Tumbling Bear, by Richard Connaughton.

What Margard said.

Just this year military history illustrated did a few articles on the war too.

As a suggestion, I think the UK sites (Imperial War Museum?) might have e-copies of their multi-volume History of the War between Russia and Japan…title escapes me right now, but it is waaaay comprehensive, if a bit biased toward the Japanese at times (published like 1907-12, something like that…).

Websites are almost always secondary or even tertiary sources (meaning compendia of secondary sources). Especially Wikipedia. I'm afraid that books are your best resource for any research on the RJW, and some are on line. One of my favorites on the early war has always been "Russia and Japan and the War in the Far East" published in 1905/6 and written by an American correspondent, as IIRC. I do know that one is on line.

Having said that, almost every naval site that deals with the early 20th Century has at least equipment and often written materials/analysis/history on the war at sea side.
