When Portuguese traders took advantage of the constant violence in Japan to sell the Japanese their first firearms, one of the quickest to take advantage of this new technology was the powerful daimyo Oda Nobunaga. In 1575 the impetuous Takeda Katsuyori laid siege to Nagashino castle, a possession of Nobunaga's ally, Tokugawa Ieyasu. An army was despatched to relieve the siege, and the two sides faced each other across the Shidarahara. The Takeda samurai were brave, loyal and renowned for their cavalry charges, but Nobunaga, counting on Katsuyori's impetuosity, had 3,000 musketeers waiting behind prepared defences for their assault. The outcome of this clash of tactics and technologies was to change the face of Japanese warfare forever.

Each book analyses a major battle or campaign, from outbreak to conclusion, taking stock of the opposing forces at crucial points in the fighting. Full colour 3-D birds-eye views, battle scenes and maps help you to follow the action. Books in the Osprey Campaign series contain up to six pages of battlescene artwork, and colour and black and white images throughout. They provide an important reference resource for history enthusiasts, academics and wargamers.
