Oda Nobunaga: the major daimyo who led the unification of what is now Japan!

Oda Nobunaga (June 23, 1534-June 21,1582) won the Battle of Okehamaza by element of a surprise attack against the samurai  army of Imagawa Yoshimoto. Oda set up dummy soldiers in marching order and flags on one end to make his army look bigger than it was. Then, oda and his troops marched in a hurry to ambush Imagawa's army. The battle was so sudden that Imagawa thought his army were going at each other. The war ended when Imagawa blocked a blow to his head, only to be decapitated moments later.
