Japan has a rich history of female warriors beginning with the Empress Jingo-Kogo who led an invasion of Korea while pregnant. This book reveals the story of these Samurai women using material that's been translated into English for the first time. The author also examines their more modern roles as wives, mothers and daughters showing how women were often the driving force behind the throne.

An excellent book on [a] subject ... about which few have written in any language. A book I know you will enjoy reading as much as did I.
