Fourth Kawanakajima 1561 - Phase 3

Attack against the Takeda Command Tent

The Uesugi troops had pushed forward and were in sight of Takeda Shingen's command tent.  Shingen, unaware the enemy was so close, had been directing the battle when his headquarters and bodyguard were attacked.  Not having time to draw his sword Shingen defended himself with his war-fan.  Samurai rushed to aid Shingen and the assault on the Takeda command tent was repulsed.
Elsewhere, the Takeda battle line managed to hold against the fierce rotating attacks of the Uesugi army.  The cost, however, was great as many brave Samurai leaders would fall in an effort to maintain the line.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command.  The rest is history.
