By 1572 Takeda Shingen was at the height of his power largely due to his superb Samurai cavalry. Although Tokugawa Ieyasu was not his greatest threat, Ieyasu would not grant the Takeda army right of passage to attack elsewhere. Shingen marched to the high ground at Mikata-ga-Hara and deployed his army in the classic fish-scale formation, which supposedly would entice Ieyasu to attack. Outnumbered, Ieyasu gambled that a quick strike might catch the Takeda army by surprise, but the Takeda soldiers held firm and counterattacked violently. The Takeda cavalry rode down the Tokugawa Teppo and Ashigaru in the open. Ieyasu's escape was made good only by the sacrifice of a number of brave generals.
