Americans nml British Indians who
bore the brunt of the fighting. The
Japanese, on blowing up the eastern
gates of the Tartar city, would have
found themselves much nearer the
legations than the Americans and
British, who entered by the Tung Pien
gates, and hail the whole breadth of
the Chinese city to croas. On the
other hand, it may be assumed that
the best fighting men of the Boxer
force were in the Manchu city, so
that the Japanese may have had
more strenuous resistance to encoun-
ter than their allies. Military men I ___n„v|rta,
