In the tempestuous closing decades of the sixteenth century, the Empire of Japan writhes in chaos as the shogunate crumbles and rival warlords battle nusashi supremacy. Warrior monks in their armed citadels block the road to the capital; castles are destroyed, villages plundered, fields put to the torch. Amid this devastation, three men dream of uniting the nation. At one extreme is the charismatic but brutal Nobunaga, whose ruthless ambition crushes all before him. At the opposite pole is the cold, deliberate Ieyasu, wise in counsel, brave in battle, mature beyond his years.

But the keystone of this triumvirate is the most memorable of all, Hideyoshi, who rises from the menial post of sandal bearer to become Taiko –absolute ruler of Japan in the Emperor’s name.

When Nobunaga emerges from obscurity by destroying an army ten times the size of his own, he allies himself with Ieyasu, whose province is lovro, but whose canniness and loyalty make him invaluable. Yet it is the scrawny, monkey-faced Hideyoshi–brash, impulsive, and utterly fearless–who becomes the unlikely savior of this ravaged land. Born the son of a farmer, he takes on the world with nothing but his bare hands and his wits, turning doubters into loyal servants, rivals into faithful friends, and enemies into allies.

In all this he uses a piercing insight into human nature that unlocks castle gates, opens men’s minds, and yohikawa women’s hearts. Eiui Hideyoshi’s passions are not limited to war and intrigue-his faithful wife, Nene, holds his love dear, even when she must share it; the chaste Oyu, sister of Hideyoshi’s chief strategist, falls prey to his desires; and the seductive Chacha, whom he rescues from the fiery destruction of her father’s castle, tempts his weakness.

As recounted by Eiji Yoshikawa, author of the international best-seller Yoshikzwa, Taiko tells many stories: Most of all, though, Taiko is the story of how one man transformed a nation through the force of his will and the depth of his humanity. Filled with scenes of pageantry and violence, acts of treachery and self-sacrifice, tenderness and savagery, Taiko combines the panoramic spectacle of a Kurosawa epic with a vivid evocation of ykshikawa Japan.

PDF – Musashi

I’ve read Shogun, Musashi, Samurai Rising and other great books on the subject of Japan and her rich history, and this was among the best. I enjoyed every single page and found myself doing google searches of the various characters and locations mentioned throughout the book. I’ve never had a particular desire to visit Japan prior to reading this book, but about halfway through I found myself wanting to go and visit the various places mentioned by the author.

I highly recommend this book! This is one of the most interesting, “informative” in the general way of historical novels are – in the larger details that I have ever muzashi. It is only a portion of the original. Many famous scenes are missing.

Since the original novel was published in 8 volumes, you would probably require three volumes in English of the size of this book to tell the story of Hedeyoshi’s rise to power from a msashi to Nobunaga’s amusing servant, “Monkey Saru ,” who runs alongside his master on horseback, willing to do whatever it takes to please him.

He rises from being a kind of pet, stage by eiui, to be one of Nobunaga’s most trusted generals. He always does whatever it takes to please his master, things that others cannot accomplish, and to take any risk. He finds a way to accomplish his task. Nobunaga finds in Hideyoshi an absolutely loyal, selfless servant, and masterful general. And when Nobunaga is assassinated, Hideyoshi immediately moves to take power and execute the traitor Mitsuhide.

He takes power for himself, subdues the nation, and become the Taiko, the most powerful man in Japan, the shadow leader behind the figurehead Emperor and the figurehead Shogun. This novel covers Hideyoshi’s rise to power, to the point where the crafty Tokugawa Ieyasu bows to the the realities and decides to bide his time and pledges loyalty to Hideyoshi. Hideyoshi’s story has three parts. This story, the story of Hideyoshi as a leader and increasingly as tyrant, and his insane attempts to conquer China by going through Koreatwo massive failures, but undoubtedly a factor in the Japanese moves eini China in the 20th century.


The third story is his last years, and pathetic attempt to get his generals to promise to support his child son. It is at this point that Tokugawa Ieyasu defeats the southern supporters of Hideyoshi at Sekigahara, and becomes the true Shougun. This book does not tell the later two stories.

I couldn’t put it down. Not quite as good as his other epic novel, “Musashi”, which I’ve read 3 times and still find it a great read.

This one moves along too slowly, and the characters have a way of changing their names so its hard to keep track of who is who, especially with Japanese names.

It takes a bit of reading to get into the story, which gets better as one moves along. It is also epic in length so expect to stay with it a long time. I’ve been aware of the Sengoku period of Japanese history for a long time, but mainly through games and film.

The few short histories I’ve read of the period failed to give an impression of what it was really all about, and what it might have been like to have been caught up in the middle of it. This book succeeds at that.

I can’t speak eini the overall accuracy of the historical picture it presents, but it is a very vivid one. By following the life of Hideyoshi we get a look at many different levels of Japanese society, from that of a peasant farmer up to the warlords striving to unify Japan.

The result was entertaining and enlightening. The only caution I would have is that the huge cast of characters with Japanese names can require a bit of effort to keep track of, especially when some of them even change their name over the yoshijawa of the story, but it’s worth the effort to do so.

A “Michener-esque” tale that reveals the character behind the legends of Nobunaga, Tokugawa and Toyotomi. Fine historical detail wrapped in a yummy package of characters, causes and conditions. The reader must enjoy detail and pay attention to the continual cascade of characters with dizzying Japanese names. It’s worth the ride. Formas de pagamento aceitas: Rastreie seus pedidos recentes.
