Fourth Kawanakajima 1561 - Phase 4

Ford of Amenomiya

Through the night, the flanking force of "Operation Woodpecker" under the command of Kosaka had ascended Mt. Saijo only to find that the Uesugi troops had abandoned the position.  Hearing the sound of battle, Kosaka quickly moved to the ford of Amenomiya, which was guarded by Amakasu Omi-no-kami Kagemochi, one of Kenshin's most reliable generals, and a small detachment of men.
The fighting was fierce as the Uesugi rearguard was almost wiped out trying in vain to stop the crossing.  When Kosaka and his men did cross the Chikumagawa the stage was set for a dramatic turn of fortunes, for Nobutaka's "Operation Woodpecker" plan would surprise Kenshin and his army.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command.  The rest is history.

Victory
6 Banners
1 Victory Banner for each unit or leader eliminated.  At the start of each Takeda player's turn, each Takeda unit, excluding leaders, that is on the Uesugi side of the Chikumagawa river counts as 1 Victory Banner.  As long as the unit remains on that side of the river, it continues to count.  If the unit is eliminated or retreats back to the Takeda side of the river, it no longer counts as a Victory Banner.

Special Rules
The Chikumagawa River is impassable except at the three river fords.
