Description

Samurai Warrior Operations Manual examines the Samurai world: the moral and psychological development of the warrior, the ethical standards they were meant to uphold, their training in both martial arts and strategy, and the enormous role that the traditions of Shintoism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism had in influencing samurai ideals. It also examines the more personal aspects of a Samurai warrior: what they ate, how they dressed, the weapons they used, their battle tactics, and the fascinating details of their day to day life.
