Cuốn này rất hay, hơn cuốn 1 nhiều, đọc vèo cái hết luôn. Phần về thời chiến quốc thật ra chỉ có chừng 1/4. Phần lớn quyển sách nói về hành trình đi đánh Triều Tiên của các tướng do Hideyoshi cử đi. Nhờ đó mà đọc được nhiều về cuộc chiến Nhật-Triều thế kỉ 16, nhất là về Kato Kiyomasa. Phần về Date Masamune cũng rất hay. Vì Masamune ít can dự vào các trận đánh lớn thời chiến quốc (đến trận Sekigahara còn né) nên mình chưa có cơ hội đọc nhiều.
