Reviews

"The Samurai Swordsman is a coffee table book with an abundance of full color photos, prints, paintings, and portraits (some taking up two pages). Like most of Turnbull's books, its a visual treat. It's organized by chapter into several interesting themes and the incidents Turnbull lays out make for entertaining reading." --TheShogunsHouse.com, the official blog of the Samurai Archives Japanese History Page "The Samurai Swordsman: Master of War is an examination of the true Samurai, who dominated Japan during its feudal era, much like Knights once dominated Europe. Going deep into the nature of Samurai as complex individuals and not just swords with legs, it looks at everything--the Samurai statesman, the Samurai artist, and more. Enhanced with full color paintings throughout, The Samurai Swordsman is highly recommended for community library history and art collections and for anyone who has always had a fascination with this warrior caste." --Midwest Book Review
