The Asahi Shimbun has a great article on Nobunaga's biographer, Jeroen Lamers. Mr. Lamers has written Japonius Tyrannus: The Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga reconsidered and the English version of The Chronicle of Lord Nobunaga. Here is one line that stands out: "His paper depicted the samurai lord (Nobunaga) not as a genius or an oppressor, but as a more realistic individual with his own personal struggles."
I would like to see Lamers work on Oze Hoan's Shinchoki in the near future.
Nobunaga no tame!
