Chosokabe Letter I

The Chosokabe letter is back in the news again and there is a link in English explains the letter.

Read the link and what is your opinion?

Now I am no expert on the Honnoji Rebellion.  My focus is mainly on young Nobunaga and the Battle of Okehazama.  That being said, I do have the best paper in English on the Honnoji Rebellion, Toki wa Ima by Brandon Schindewolf.  Here is my opinion on this subject.  The Chosokabe first refused Nobunaga's offer and later changed their minds at the last minute in order to survive (at least keep some of their lands in Shikoku.  In reality, they were second or third rate at best).

Tenka no tame!
