New Okehazama Book

I received Watanabe Fumio's book on the Battle of Okehazama today.  It is decent and it does contain maps.  However, I have been warned that Mr. Watanabe has never been to the Okehazama battlefield and reaches his conclusions by the use of maps and books.  That being said, one interesting theory Mr. Watanabe has stated was that one of Imagawa Yoshimoto's weaknesses was he was not militarily educated or prepared compared to Nobunaga.  Yoshimoto let his retainer's do the job while he enjoyed the Kyoto court noble lifestyle.  Very interesting indeed!

Tenka no tame!
