Inhaltsangabe: Secrets of the Samurai is the definitive study of the martial arts of feudal Japan—explaining in detail the weapons, techniques, strategies, and principles of combat that made the Japanese warrior a formidable foe.
Beginning with a panoramic survey of the tumultuous early struggles of warlords contending for political ascendancy, the samurai history outlines the relentless progression of the military class toward absolute power.
