Description - The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps: The Bloody Battles and Intrigues of the Shinsengumi by Romulus Hillsborough

Power to them meant everything. It was founded on courage, which begot honour. And by this courage and for this honour they fought to the death.

The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps tells the thrilling story of the Shinsengumi - the legendary corps of Samurai warriors tasked with keeping order in Kyoto during the final chaotic years of the Tokugawa Shogunate. This book recounts the fascinating tales of political intrigue, murder and mayhem surrounding the fearsome Shinsengumi, including:

  • The infamous slaughter at Ikedaya Inn where, after learning of a plan to torch the city, a group of Shinsengumi viciously attacked and killed a group of anti-Tokugawa plotters
  • The bloody assassination of Serizawa Kamo, the Shinsengumi leader, under highly suspicious circumstances
  • The final tumultuous battles of the civil war in which the Shinsengumi fought and died in a series of doomed last stands
