From the Author
The most comprehensive encyclopaedia of samurai life and war
In this book I provide comprehensive data about the samurai. Some of the information you have seen before - inevitable in a work like this, but nearly all the illustrations are new, and you wil also find lots of new research on armour, weapons and campaigns, including a full list of samurai and heraldry and a huge gazeteer of battles with maps.
