Description

Samurai Tales is about the legendary men reborn from the samurai class who fought for the helm of power in 19th century Japan. In an internecine war that was unique in its scope and character, Hillsborough gives us a rare and fascinating look at the men who were willing to sacrifice their lives for their leaders and their country. Names like Sakamoto Ryoma, Kondo Isami and Katsu Kaishu, whose achievements and adventures have been recounted here, have become samurai legends in this pivotal era in Japanese history. These are stories of courage, honor, fidelity, disgrace, fate and destiny set in the bloody time of political change and social upheaval in the final years of the Shogun.
