G21 NUNOBEYAMA 1570 AD
In 1570, Amako Katsuhisa was convinced to return to samurai life after living as a monk for four years. He joined Yamanaks Shilanosuke at Niiyama Castle just in time to meet the invading Mori forces about to cross the Linashigawa. It was determined that Niiyama Castle could not withstand a general assault, so it would be best if the Amako forces fought in the open. As the Mori army set about crossing the Linashigawa, the smaller force of Yamanaks Shikanosuke attacked. Meanwhile, Mori Terumoto, concealed by forest, made a flanking march and attacked the castle. Word came to Shikanosuke that the castle had been captured, so with no place to fall back, Shikanosuke ordered the Amako forces to retreat.
