Interesting and a fast read about Saigo Takamori The Last Samurai who led the Satsuma Rebellion against the Meiji government of Japan in 1877 I would have liked depth in the treatment of this subject but what I liked about it was that Man followed in the footsteps of Saigo mainly on the southern island of Kyushu so I enjoyed the travelogue aspect of the story A much better retelling of the story of Saigo is to be found as a chapter in Ivan Morris The Nobility of Failure Tragic Heroes in the History of Japan Souvenir of the great volcano Sakurajima to his glorious death by ritual suicide and disembowelment Saigo Takamori was the ultimate Samurai leader His fall brought about the end Twelfth Night; or What You Will of hundreds The Suicide of years Kilted Desire 2 Russian Roulette of Samurai tradition.

summary Samurai author John Man ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF John Man ´ 8 free read free download Samurai author John Man The name 'Samurai' is synonymous with the ultimate warrior With their elaborate armour fierce swordsmanship and code of honour the samurai have become iconic figures whose influence can still be felt today From Kurosawa's epic Seven Samurai to the figure of Darth Vader in Star Wars to Manga comics and video games the figure of the fight. An excellent biography of Saigo the true last samurai Really unsure why Hollywood chose to replace him with a Westerner in the movie His story was just as moving and poignant as was his redemption after death Saigo was uite the walking contradiction easily showing that few things in this human world are black and white The author has the knack for educating and providing sources while making it sound like you re sitting across from him at a pub while he tells you the story Really am unsure why the intro to this book s entry on Goodreads et al reads The definitive history of the Samurai it s really just the biography of Saigo Nonetheless a really well done and excellently written biography It does lose one star for me in its false advertising of being a history on the Samurai class
