"Tokugawa Ieyasu is the pivotal figure of early modern Japan. He was the military leader who completed the reunification of Japan after more than a century of civil war and then restored for himself the central governing position of shogun following his victory at Sekigahara in 1600, one of the most decisive battles in Japanese history. Yet his triumph did more than bring peace to Japan, it placed his family in a position of dominance that they were to enjoy for two and a half centuries under the emergence of modern Japan. In this title, Stephen Turnbull examines Ieyasu's military career and achievements in detail, including the conflict with Hideyoshi, as well as the battle of Sekigahara and his claims for greatness"--back cover.
