For beauty, precision and strength, nothing has ever matched the combination of form and function found in Japanese armour. 

To a samurai, the consummate warrior, his suit of armour was so much more than just protective equipment that could save his life in the heat of battle - it was the embodiment of his personality, social status and very soul. 

This volume examines the development and evolution of the cuirass or dō, the armour that protected the torso and was the foundation on which these elaborate and beautiful armour sets were built.
