Samurai Gaiden is the educational web series hosted by yours truly, Richard C. Shaffer. Every month I will be discussing interesting stories of the men and women of Sengoku Japan and the events that shaped their lives.
Gaiden is Japanese for short story or anecdote. An anecdote being a side-story to the main narrative; usually, but not always, humorous. Since the goal of the series to talk about the lesser-known samurai or lesser-known stories of events and people of that time, we decided to name it Samurai Gaiden.
