Sekigahara - The greatest samurai battle

This book written by Julien Peltier traces the story of one of the most fascinating characters of Japan Tokugawa leyasu who led a major issue with the battle of Sekigahara.

This battle is the biggest battle in the history of the samurai where nearly 170,000 fighters are torn to pieces.

In the fall of 1600, Tokugawa Ieyasu, one of the most fascinating figures in Japanese history, emerged victorious in the greatest samurai battle ever fought. The stakes are high since it is nothing less than the entire empire, finally pacified. The overlord of House Tokugawa will be the third of the Unifiers of the land. Before managing to reap the dividends of peace, it was however necessary to risk everything one last time on the green carpet of the rice fields of Sekigahara, a thin valley located in the heart of the archipelago. The supreme quarrel emptied on the morning of October 21, 1600, bringing together the best captains and the most valiant champions of their time. A test of gigantism, nearly 170,000 fighters were cut to pieces, leaving 30,000 of them on the sidelines. It was not until the Napoleonic epic, two centuries later, to see similar numbers rise in our latitudes. At the crossroads of two opposing centuries, Sekigahara also sounds the swan song that the warriors of yesteryear sing in spite of themselves. At the end of the battle, the days of warlords, samurai and citadels are over.
