Publisher Comments:

The term 'samurai' conjures up the image of a fierce swordsman clad in complex armor, proud and relentless in battle, ready to die - by his own hand if necessary - in obedience to an unfaltering code of honor. This dynamic and colorful volume contains 200 meticulously reproduced photographs that reveal the real samurais, their uniforms, their equipment and their weapons. Europa Militaria Special 14.

Synopsis:

Among westerners, the term "samurai" conjures images of a fierce swordman clad in complex armor, proud and relentless in battle, ready to die — by his own hand, if necessary — in obedience to an unfaltering code of honor. This informative and well-researched account documents the class of professional warriors who evolved in Japan between the 10th and 17th centuries. Color photographs depict enthusiasts clad in authentic samurai costumes and weaponry at private gatherings and public festivals in Japan. The color photography, together with an authoritative text, provide a unique perspective on how samurai armor and weaponry changed over the years in response to practical needs and improved manufacturing techniques.

Synopsis:

A collection of glamourized images of the class of paid professional warriors who evolved between the 10th and 17th centuries. Their colourful armour changed considerably over this period, but was always a practical response to contemporary weapons.
