Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

47 Ronin Story is the classic Japanese story of Lord Asano of Ako and one of the bloodiest vendettas in Japan's feudal history. In a shocking clash between the warriors and the merchant class of seventeenth century Japan, there emerged the most unlikely set of heroes--the forty-seven ronin, or ex-samurai, of Ako.

Synopsis:

This is the famous historical account of the mass seppuku (disembowelment) of the 47 ronin, or masterless samurai, shortly after the turn of the 18th century.
