Trivia about Nagashino
Did "The Continuous Fire" really happen?
The Continuous Fire

About the Battle of Nagashino, it had been believed that "The Continuous Fire" led to the Oda-Tokugawa combined forces' victory in battle.

Nowadays, however, it is said that "The Continuous Fire" is doubtful.

Trivia about Nagashino
Nothing was ever mentioned about "The Continuous Fire" in the Nobunaga Chronicles.
Also, there isn't much evidence to support it, so the story was probably made up as time passed.
Although "The Continuous Fire" didn't happen, Oda forces won because they brought many guns and employed the new tactic of making barricades against the cavalry.

So, even though "The Continuous Fire" didn't really happen, Oda Nobunaga conquered the whole nation, Tokugawa Ieyasu constructed his base in the Mikawa area, and Takeda soon after went to ruin because of the battle.

The Battle of Nagashino became a turning point for both forces.
