    Anyone lacking knowledge or understanding of early Japanese sixt

    Anyone lacking knowledge or understanding of early Japanese sixteenth century history will find the subject of this story both absorbing and interesting in its breadth and characterisation even though it takes place in only one the four main islands. For the tribal Japanese of the times fighting between clans was an annual event that took place between the planting and harvesting of agricultural crops and often the reason for the mild display of aggression was lost in the mists of time. Each tribe was told that they hated the other and that was sufficient to retrieve rusty weapons and wave them in the vague direction of their enemies after protracted ritual gestures of aggression and elaborate maneourvring to see which commanding officer had the better control of his armed men. Battles were sometimes concluded at this theatrical stage.
    When Kumi Takuma home returned to defend his father against a take-over of his province he changed the terms on which battles were fought. He wanted to win and did so at all costs. Unfortunately his military success alarmed the mainland military hierarchy with unfortunate results.
    This is a gripping story that will interest the girls as much as the blokes since the women involved influence matters in the many ways open to them that do not involve poison or stabbing with knives and swords, although they might have regretted the lack of opportunity.
