Domyoji (1615) - Battle Among the Tombs

As the Tokugawa army was making their way across the river in pursuit of the remaining Osaka forces from the Heights of Komatsuyama, the fog cleared to reveal the entire Osaka army still blundering forward.
On the Osaka left was Susukida Kanesuke.  Susukida, who was in disgrace at the time of the battle, charged forward near the tomb of Emperor Ingyo and fought valiantly and died in an attempt to redeem his honor.  Fighting is also fierce on the right, where Date Masamune, in the area of Emperor Ojin's Tomb, attacked Sanada Yukimura, in command of the Osaka Army.
Having lost two powerful leaders, Sanada Yukimura decided to retreat towards Osaka Castle.  Tokugawa Tadateru, the sixth son of Tokugawa Leyasu, is given the order to pursue Sanada's force, but refuses to obey and the Osaka army withdrew in fairly good order.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command.  The rest is history.
