It is the definitive study of the martial arts of feudal Japan written in a light, readable style and profusely illustrated by the master illustrator Oscar Ratti, famous for his depiction of the action and intrigue of Japanese martial arts. His illustrations almost jump off the page into life. Explored are the details of weapons, techniques, strategies, and principles of combat, combined with a panoramic survey of the history of warlord contention for power and the rise of the Samurai class. It is a must for serious practitioner of Japanese martial arts or anyone interested in the history and rise of the military arts in Japan.
