As a collector of samurai swords and a creative author, Michael Zomber was thrilled to write Shogun Iemitsu: War and Romance in 17th Century Tokugawa Japan. This book is about two samurai fighters who challenge the unfair leadership in Japan. The brave warriors decide to overthrow the Shoguns who rule their country without much mercy for the common people. In a recent podcast, Michael Zomber decided to discuss all of the details that went into writing this book. The podcast surely answers many of the questions that readers might have regarding the plot and other topics relating to Shogun Iemitsu: War and Romance in 17th Century Tokugawa Japan.
Michael Zomber has also authored another book about Japanese culture. Jesus and the Samurai: The Shining Religion and the Samurai chronicles the evolution of Christianity in the Far East. As a Christian, Zomber thought it would be interesting to write a book about his religion in Asia. Jesus and the Samurai: The Shining Religion and the Samurai has an embellished story line that is much more interesting to read compared to a traditional textbook used in a history class. As a creative author, Zomber often adds a touch of some fiction in order to make his work more appealing. Nevertheless, many of his works are precisely based on historical accounts that have been verified by scholars all over the world. In fact, Zomber is considered a reputable historian in his own right.
After establishing his own film studio, Michael Zomber once again decided to create something about samurai culture. Produced under Renascent Films, the Soul of the Samurai breaks down the details of Bushido, which is the code of honor that has been followed by samurai warriors for centuries. In this documentary, Zomber clearly explains the rigorous guidelines that samurai warriors have always obeyed. The Soul of the Samurai might shock viewers with some details about the bloody confrontations that often occurred after samurai fighters disrespected each other in the slightest way.
