Reviews

"The Sengku Jidai was the sage of the samurai in early Japan -- and Stephen Turnbull's discussion of the evolution and contributions of samurai armies to Japanese warfare makes for a detailed survey of not just army structure, but the family and clan ties that made it up. Military libraries strong in historic surveys as well as any collection strong in early Japanese history will find here a detailed winner." --California Bookwatch (March 2009)
