Great info and artwork,but terrible plate commentary that doesn't describe any of the guard's equipment whatsoever,just the colors and designs of their standards.

A very interesting Osprey book about the elite personal guard samurai. Some of their parade uniforms and empennage are strikingly martial, and some are hilarious! The art work is good but not outstanding.

The book is, of course, informative, presumably ideal for the audience it is aimed at. It is easy to understand, the illustrations are superb, and it is a pleasure to have this book in one's hands. It is not for the serious student, but I believe many people seek knowledge without scholarly depth; I think this book addresses this middle ground and I congratulate the author and the producers.

According to the author, the word hatamoto means those who served under the flag. This book covers the unfamiliar roles of those who were closest to the daimyo warlords in times of war and peace, covering both military and civilian admistrative duties. The book describes each role with specific examples throughout samurai history. The book also covers the spectacular standards and flags which serve to identify the locations of the daimyo, his staff and key generals, acting to control the flow of military battles and events. The illustrations are all in colour throughout.

Hatamoto is typical of Osprey Publishing's Elite series of titles. Lavishly illustrated (as usual) by English artist Richard Hook and written by Dr. Stephen Turnbull, the book gives a very nice overview of the Hatamoto, who were Samurai warriors in the 16th through the 18th centuries. Turnbull has drawn from his tremendous knowledge of Japanese history, culture, and customs to research and write a compelling overview that is certain to add to the casual reader's understanding of this legendary group of warriors. Hook's illustrations are colorful, vivid, and useful for wargamers wishing to recreate the period on the miniature battlefield. This book will be a useful addition to the bookshelves of gamers and modelers, as well as those military buffs looking for something out of the ordinary. Well done in Osprey's usual style!
