The Echigo Side at the Great Battle of Kawanakajima, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Fantastic panoramic scene of the Battle of Kawanakajima between the forces of Takeda Shingen of Kai Province and Uesugi Kenshin of Echigo Province. Shingen's troops approach from the right, led by a row of warrior monks riding dappled horses, their blue monk's cowls fluttering about their faces. Infantrymen follow in an arrow-shaped formation with spears thrust out before them. Inside the arrow are more men on horseback and standard bearers carrying banners and flags. Kenshin's forces counterattack from the left, rushing forward with spears extended. A river flows peacefully behind them with mountains filling the horizon. A fascinating view of an historic battle. A great choice for a student of military history.
