    Default Where can I find information about Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai History Period?

    As the title says: Where can I find useful information about Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai History Period? I mean Boshin War, Meiji Restoration. I want to understand the period of history in which I am playing.

    Thank you in advance.

    There is a biography on Saigo Takamori... Not sure what else I would have to check.
    Most of the books I have on the Meiji Era are actually about the Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War.

    I managed to find these books online:

    Jansen, Marius B. (2002). The Making of Modern Japan. Harvard. ISBN 0-674-00991-6

    Ravina, Mark. (2004). The Last Samurai: The Life and Battles of Saigō Takamori, Wiley. ISBN 0-471-08970-2

    Romulus Hillsborough. (2005). Shinsengumi The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps.

    Thank you for your advice, is not so easy to find books covering the Boshin War.
