Brilliant warrior, reluctant rebel, and tragic figure caught between tradition and a changing world The riveting life of Saigo Takamori, Japan?s "last samurai" Saigo Takamori was one of Japan?s most celebrated samurai. Saigo was born in poverty, but his noble spirit caught the attention of Japan?s political leaders. He was promoted to statesman, and exiled, pardoned, and exiled again. Still, Saigo lived to serve his country. In 1867, his troops supported the emperor in the Meiji Restoration and helped pull down the Tokugawa Shogunate. But when the new Japan that Saigo helped create then stripped the samurai of all that made them samurai?tradition, honor, glory, and feudal privilege?Saigo led an army of samurai partisans toward Tokyo to fight the imperial conscript army. Against the colorful and turbulent backdrop of Japanese feudal society, The Last Samurai chronicles Saigo?s life, from the childhood events that shaped his courage and passionate sense of justice to Saigo?s legendary demise by his own hand on the battlefield of the Satsuma Rebellion. The Last Samurai offers a riveting account of the making of Japan?s most honored samurai, details the tragic clash between his samurai ideals and Japan?s transformation into a modern nation, and illustrates why this consummate soldier and reluctant rebel is still as revered today as he was over 125 years ago.
