A general watches his forces rush forward in a dawn attack. His thick hair waves in the morning breeze and his powerful armoured figure dominates the design. His ferocious aura is increased by the skull that he has chosen as his standard. The way the skull and spear break out through the upper border adds to the dynamism of the design.

The print illustrates the Battle of Mount Tobisu near Nagashino in Mikawa province. Here in 1575 the forces of Oda Nobunaga and his then retainer, Tokugawa Yeyasu, defeated the army of the Takeda Clan. This was an important battle in Yeyasu’s early military career, establishing him on the long journey which led to his domination of a unified Japan twenty-five years later.
