Rain and high explosives alike fall upon the OzuOnce the shelling starts, Ozu is forced to rush into battle with me lest they die to my bombardment. In an act of clear desperation, their daimyo charges my force before his men are in a position to successfully engage. Though his charge exacts a heavy toll on my men, the Ozu daimyo is slain before the battle proper begins.
The Ozu daimyo meets his fate while his force looks on in the distanceSoon enough the battle proper commences. Losses are heavy on my side but the day is won as the Ozu army loses heart after seeing their daimyo fall before my might. The Ozu army is obliterated and ceases to exist as an operational unit by the time the smoke clears on the battlefield. Capturing Iyo is an important first step on the long road that lies ahead.
The battle proper begins
An auspicious start
