About This Book

In May of 1592, Japan, recently unified under Toyotomi Hideyoshi, sent a 158,800-man army aboard a thousand ships from Kyushu to Busan on Korea's southern tip. Its objective: to conquer Korea, then China, and then the whole of Asia. The resulting seven years of fighting, known in Korea as imjin waeran [the "Imjin invasion"] after the year of the water dragon in which it began, involved 300,000 combatants and claimed more than two million lives. It dwarfed any contemporary conflict in Europe, and was one of the most devastating wars to grip East Asia in the past thousand years. Through this seven year long war, the biggest hero in Korean history has risen -- Admiral Yi Sun Sin -- emerging from a prison cell to take on a Japanese armada with only 13 ships of his own. The Imjin War is an epic tale of grand perspective and intimate detail of an upheaval that shook East Asia more than four centuries ago, and which continues to strain relations between Korea and Japan today.
