Overview

Toyotomi Hideyoshi was the greatest military commander to be produced by pre-modern Japan, a man who experienced a rise to power that was unequalled by anyone else in Japanese history. Born the son of a peasant and rising from the ranks to military greatness, Hideyoshi had always been a soldiers general and inspired loyalty even after his death.

By 1591 Hideyoshi had reunited Japan, a feat brought about through the skilful application of strategy and diplomacy at which he excelled.
