A reluctant leader.,
This review is from: The Last Samurai: The Life and Battles of Saigo Takamori (Paperback)
Excellent account of who is undoubtedly a man of honour and integrity.
Disgruntled by the pace at which his society moved to embrace a Western Society that is failing in so many ways. He became a leader of note. It is curious that those who never seek power wear the mantle well whereas others are seen for who they really are.
I found the book inspiring. Well written and genuinely a book worthy of learning from.
