Chapter Summary

On the first day of the First Month, all presented themselves before Nobunaga at Gifu in Mino Province. On the 24th of the Second Month, Isono Tanba surrendered, pleading for mercy, handed over Sawayama Castle, and withdrew to Takashima. On the 12th of the Fifth Month, Nobunaga sent forces from three directions toward Nagashima in the Delta. On the 16th of the Fifth Month, Nobunaga set fire to various localities and settlements in the area and began to withdraw his army. Nobunaga led his army toward the northern Ōmi front and encamped at Yokoyama. Nobunaga abolished all duties at toll barriers throughout the provinces under his control. Travelers could come and go as they pleased, thanks to Nobunagas benevolence. This was the foundation of his ever-increasing prosperity. But the cause of it all was Nobunagas desire to study the Way, rise in the world, and gain fame in future generations.
