Book excerpt: When the former Newly Selected Corps of Samurai known as the Shinsengumi were driven from their base in Kyoto, the tide of Japan's Boshin War had turned against the remaining Tokugawa Loyalists. Of the Shinsengumi's three surviving captains, no one knew for certain what became of 10th Unit Captain Harada Sanosuke. Until now. Based on a real-life 1965 rumor that surfaced in a Japanese newspaper, The Soldier and the Samurai is an epic tale of gratitude. It is the fictional account of a man who claimed to be the famous lost Samurai who appeared in Manchuria twenty-seven years after his alleged death at the Battle of Ueno, saving the lives of three Japanese soldiers during the First Sino-Japan War before disappearing again. One man will seek out the truth of what took place during that January 1895 and the discovery of a mysterious inscription written on the back of a Japanese tanto knife. A message that will alter the course of his life and that of his family for generations to come!
