About This Item

The word 'samurai' invokes intense images of indomitable warriors, expert swordsman capable of taking on overwhelming odds and emerging victorious-and relatively unscathed. But the popular image of the samurai only brushes the surface of these complex warriors. Samurai Swordsman: Master of War brings to life the story behind the widespread ideal of the courageous and highly-disciplined fighting men of early Japan. Authoritative military-history expert Stephen Turnbull shows how the samurai evolved from the primitive fighters of the 7th century into an invincible military caste with a fearsome reputation. Many aspects of the samurai and their military significance are covered, including the cultural reasons that the elite mounted archers originally emerged in Japan; the wars against pirate invaders; how samurai masters taught the next generation; the women samurai and their accomplishments; and much more. Samurai Swordsman is an invaluable guide to an enduring legacy.
