In the tempestuous closing decades of the sixteenth century, the Empire of Japan writhes in chaos as the shogunate crumbles and rival warlords battle for supremacy. Warrior monks in their armed citadels block the road to the capital; castles are destroyed, villages plundered, fields put to the torch. Amid this devastation, three men dream of uniting the nation. At one extreme is the charismatic but brutal Nobunaga, whose ruthless ambition crushes all before him.

Among his best-known novels are revisions of older classics. As an example, Yoshikawa took up Taiko 's original manuscript in 15 volumes to retell it in a more accessible tone and reduce it to only two volumes.
