Osprey Elite 125 : Samurai Commanders (1) 940-1576

The samurai were the military elite of medieval and early modern Japan, and the men who led them were hailed as the greatest, most heroic and most honourable of all samurai warriors. This first of two books examines the lives, equipment, battles and wider roles of the samurai commanders between 1060 and 1576, the period from the emergence of the samurai to the triumph of Oda Nobunaga, who set Japan on the road to reunification. The styles of armour and weaponry of the samurai changed considerably during this time and this book visually recreates some of the most famous samurai commanders. Text by Stephen Turnbull with illustrations by Richard Hook.
