An interesting insight
on 29 August 2013
A well written and interesting insight in to the history and use of this iconic weapon. Featuring some great traditional (as well as some modern) illustrations. The book follows the development of the japanese sword, explaining how it's form changed due to the
changes in it's use. From the ancient battle fields of Japan to a modern day Dojo, its all covered. You will be hooked from the beginning to the end, only wish it was longer!!!
A must read for the beginner Samurai.
Stephen Turnbull really does know his stuff.
