Okehazama tactics

I found the perfect quote to sum up the Battle of Okehazama 1560 by the USMC in Warfighting 1989.

"Surprise is paralysis, if only partial and temporary, of the enemy's ability to resist.  The advantage gained by the surprise depends on the degree of surprise and the enemy's ability to adjust and recover."

Nobunaga's surprise attack was executed so well that Yoshimoto's army never had the ability nor the time to adjust and recover.  For more information on warfare in general, please visit this link:
