Nobunaga Podcast II

Last night before retiring for bed, I listened to a podcast on Oda Nobunaga.  The podcast host, Cameron Foster is from Australia and his seventeen minute podcast on the rise of Nobunaga is perfect for the newbie.  The podcast discusses Oda Nobuhide a bit before introducing the Uesama.  The rest of the podcast discusses the Battle of Okehazama.  Again, it is very general.  In fact, it gets the newbie interested in Nobunaga and Okehazama.  I would suggest the newbie after listening to Mr. Foster's podcast to buy my book on the Battle of Okehazama, read the English version of the Shincho-Ko ki, Lamers Japonius Tyrannus, David D. Neilson's thesis Society at War, and listen to the SA (Samurai Archives) podcasts on Nobunaga.  I encourage everyone to listen to Mr. Foster's podcast and make their own decision.  Many thanks to Mr. Foster for trying something different.  I enjoyed it.

Nobunaga no tame!
