Description

Depicting thrilling scenes of battles, gunships, castle sieges, and the samurais’ heroic last stand, this book portrays the bloody uprising of 1887, when Satsuma area rebels, led by the infamous Saigo Takamori, fought enforced modernisation by the Meiji Japanese government.

Their crushing defeat by the imperial army ended their power once and for all and ushered in an era of modern technology and western military methods.

Wilson’s thrilling narrative and Shimojima’s striking images convey both the drama of these events and the importance of the historical moment.
