HISTORY DETAILS
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 Kansuke's "Operation Woodpecker" plan would surprise Kenshin and his army.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. Can you change history?

A long and frustrating game for me. This one took two nights for 3.5 hours. We both settled in for a slow game of planning attacks and getting archers/gunners in place. The fords created choke points at the river. I smashed his ranged troops early, but was only able to take out one before he got back across the river. Then we spent a lot of time setting up our attacks. Judd came across the river with a Cav unit and I could not stop him, even with my own Cav. I lost a leader trying. Once he broke through he ran at will. I did take out a unit near the river with ranged fire, and got the leader. But it was too late. A tactic "ambush" card could have killed his Cav and saved me, but it was a miss. From there he took out two units to win. Judd wins 6-4.
