Okehazama Number One

The new issue of Ikkojin has the Batlle of Okehazama as its top battle in the Warring States Era.  That is great news indeed.  The other Nobunaga battle that was in the top was Nagashino, and it came in sixth place.  Sekigahara came in a very close second.  The battles were graded on scale, command/leadership, effect, and scenic spot.  Each battle has a color map with pictures of the landmarks at the battlefield.  I am so excited that the Battle of Okehazama won out.  It does has pictures of both the Arimatsu and Toyoake City Okehazama battlefield.

The Battle of Anegawa also is in this current issue along with a special article on Date Masamune.  The Battle of Kawanakajima is discussed as well.  Also the issue includes color graphic displays of battle formations, when armies set out for battle, and the head viewing ceremony.  Overall, I endorse this issue as must for anyone who is interested in Sengoku warfare.
