The Ravine near Saigadake 1572

After his retreat to Hamamatsu castle, as Ieyasu expected, the Takeda army leaders suspected a trick and did not attack the castle, when they saw the open castle gate, light of the f ires and heard the Tokugawa drums. The army, instead, pulled back and set up camp near Saigadake. That night, a volunteer Tokugawa force was gathered and attacked the Takeda camp.
After a short exchange, the volunteer force retired as planned. The Takeda soldiers followed, but not knowing the area were led to a deep ravine and onto a dummy bridge covered in cloth. Scores of Takeda soldiers fell into the ravine and were cut down.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
