Another great history book by Stephen Turnbull that tracks the warriors of Japan from mythological heroes to the screaming dive of the kamikaze plane. Lots of unique facts and stories in this book. Especially memorable are his discussions of the Byakkotai of Aizu and the Seinan War (Satsuma Rebellion). Nice overview of the history, weapons and culture of the Samurai.

Excellent book by an excellent author. One of the better Samurai books out there. Not a huge amount of detail, but enough to have told me things I didn't know, and I am fairly well-read on the subject.

The book was very informative. It told readers about everything from the way the samurai dressed to how they made their tea. In addition to the history of Japan during their rule, they also went into great detail about there weapons and armor, the way they fought, and the techniques used to in combat.
In addition, the book was filled with great pictures. Maps of the changing territories. Old Japanese art work. Even rare photographs of the Samurai in full battle gear. They did just compliment the reading, they offered even more information in the captions that wasn't even mentioned in the reading.
All-in-all, this was a good read.
