2000: Battle of Kawanakajima (Suwahara)

The dramatic moment in the historical fourth battle of Kawanakajima at which Uesugi Kenshin bursts into the headquarters of his opponent Takeda Shingen, who has only a signalling fan with which to fend off the attack.

This battle, in 1561, was one of a series between the Uesugi and Takeda clans, part of the very bloody infighting that eventually led to the unification of Japan under the Tokugawa Shogunate.


Wikipedia has an excellent article: Battles of Kawanakajima

Born in Ibaraki, in 1969, Suwahara embarked on a career as a freeleance illustrator in 1996. He has specialised in historical figures, especially from the Three Kingdoms story, and brings a very modern technique to some traditional themes.

Suwahara is his family name.
