Samurai 1550-1600, Paperback / softback Book

Samurai 1550-1600 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Christa Hook, Angus McBride

Part of the Warrior S. series

Description

This title details the culture, weapons, armour and training of the elite samurai warrior class in the fascinating Age of Battles period (1550-1600).

This was a period of vital importance not only because of the political effects of the chaos but also due to the changes in warfare that occurred.

In 1542 the Portuguese introduced the matchlock musket into Japanese warfare, and this book traces the effect that this important innovation had on the samurai.

Life outside the field of battle is also examined, making this an unmissable book for those interested in this brave warrior caste.
