Esamina il mondo del guerriero Samurai: l’aspetto morale e psicologico, l’etica, l’addestramento, le tradizioni, i riti, le armi, l’abbigliamento, le tattiche di combattimento, ecc.
Emerging into history in the 8th century CE, the samurai evolved to become an aristocratic warrior elite that dominated Japanese warfare and society until the 1600s. They were renowned not only for their skills at arms, first with the bow then with the sword, but also for their adherence to strict martial and personal codes. As much as they were brutal, merciless, and skilled in battle, they were also defined by ritual, etiquette and education.
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.
