    Kindle Hiroaki Sato ¿ Legends of the Samurai PDF/EPUB ¸ Legends of eBook ¿ legends kindle, samurai pdf, Legends of mobile, Legends of the Samurai EpubThis is a collection of stories about the Samurai I still cringe when I think of disembowelment and beheading but if you can get through that the Samurai had an interesting code of ethics I have always been fascinated with Japanese History but remember they mix legend and history This was easier for me than some others because I h

    Kindle Hiroaki Sato ¿ Legends of the Samurai PDF/EPUB ¸ Legends of eBook ¿ legends kindle, samurai pdf, Legends of mobile, Legends of the Samurai EpubTo be clear this is not a set of gripping historical thrillers; nor is it a clean pour from history's stream; still less is it readily accessible to the modern reader What Sato has done is compile a broad view of samurai literature written mostly by samurai and those close to them for other samurai such that this book highlights fables parables codes treatises and poetry all centered around what it meant to be in Japan's warrior caste To say that this world of intricate ritual ordained speech and rigid byzantine patterns of honor negotiation is complex is about as unnecessary as mentioning that Hemingway liked to write about day drinking But many of the stories are fascinating for what they teach of the Way of the Sword memorable lectures on humility moderation warfare discipline and education Lest we forget that the second ar
