007 Domyoji (1615) - Heights of Komatsuyama
Domyoji (1615) - Heights of Komatsuyama
Goto Mototsugu, leading the vanguard of a large Osaka army, had already crossed the Ishikawa River early in the morning of June 3. When his scouts reported that the Tokugawa Army was moving towards the Heights of Komatsuyama, Goto made a dash to take the heights, determined to make a stand at the top of Komatsuyama until the rest of the Osaka army could arrive.
Goto and the vanguard managed to hold for some time against strong enemy attacks, but in the morning fog the Osaka army was not making much headway and relief never came. During one of the attacks, Goto is shot, and he committed seppuku.
Outnumbered and their leader lost, the Osaka vanguard retired back across the Ishikawa.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
