Got this years ago on a site called Swapits. I really thought I registered this on bookcrossing, clearly not.

Blurb:

What would have happened if a samurai fought a gladiator? Who would have won - And how? Deadly accurate, VS presents the ultimate contest, plucking from history ten of its greatest warriors and plunging them into fierce, close-combat action.

Ten legendary warriors
Five incredible battles
One ultimate winner"

A history of warriors competing against each other to become the ultimate warrior, yet none of which are alive today, capturing, conquering and brutally murdering everyone insight, so surely common sense and the world wanting world peace conquered all, and although, even today, bad things are still going on, every person wants everyone to live in harmony, in one way or another.

This gave me much knowledge on the history of warriors, and many famous names popped up. I did guess that the Samurai would win as the ultimate winner, but was I right?

I did enjoy this, although I think the information was sparse, especially in some of the warrior's profiles. However the information that was in there was highly detailed and I did learn a few things that I would've not known. As well as warriors I had never heard of, yet I was aware of their famous leaders.

I did find the battles a little on the boring side, the book has chosen everything for you, and so all you do is read it, rather than help the characters in any way. I think this could've worked better if you could have chosen what would happen, even though the outcome would always be the same. Maybe to make it a bit like a game book?

Also I think the battle scenes should have been a fictionalised chapter of some sort, so we could really imagine being in the stands watching one of the greatest battles of warrior vs warrior. Instead we get one image of them fighting, info on what they are wearing and what weapon they are using as well as what stance and action they are more than likely going to use. Then we get a picture of the winner standing and the loser in a heap on the floor.

Overall this could've been better, but it definitely could've been a lot worse. It was great to be wrapped up in such a world, for the best of two hours.
