Another good Netflix movie recomended by aberrios
http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Japan_Memoirs_of_a_Secret_...

Japan: Memoirs of a Secret Empire
2004 NR 3 episodes
As Europeans worked to conquer the world and extend their reach to other parts of the globe -- at times imposing their beliefs on citizens of other countries -- the people of Japan were decidedly isolationist, advocating separation as it nurtured its culture and traditions under its leader, Tokugawa Ieyasu. This documentary spotlights 16th and 17th century Japan as seen through the eyes of the samurai, the artist, the foreigner and many others.

As with many wargames, are there good books about the period/conflict?

If you want a book that covers the period, I recommend Conrad Totman's biography of Tokugawa Ieyasu. The pickings are slim, in English, but this old book holds up pretty well. (I do not recommend Jansen's 'Making of Modern Japan' for coverage of this campaign, though I do recommend it as an excellent 1-volume modern history.). Also good is Walter Dening's biography of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, sympathetic and perceptive.

Yeah, neat movie. But I gotta say it's hard watching that kind of stuff and hearing it in english. I much prefer to hear Japanese. The English makes it impossible to get immersed.

I rather hear the english words than read the subtitles... regardless, many of the ways of the Japanese are lost on foreigners.

Being married to a Japanese woman and having visited Japan many times I am still a bit of a bull in a China shop.
