Extra History, An Extra Credits Podcast

by

Welcome to Extra History! A weekly podcast version of Extra Credits’ weekly video lessons on YouTube. By applying the same research that the entertainment industries have so successfully used to get and keep people’s attention, Extra Credits makes education as engaging as watching a movie or playing a game. Because learning matters.

Oda Nobunaga’s control of Japan grows shakier by the day as more rivals emerge to challenge his hold on Kyoto. Egged on by the puppet shogun, Ashikaga Yoshiaki, the powerful daimyo Takeda Shingen brings his army down upon Oda’s closest ally, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and destroys them, Tokugawa escapes with his life and the aid of a ninja, Hattori Hanzo, whose subterfuge succeeds in turning back the Takeda forces. They return under Takeda’s heir, however, to besiege Nagashino Castle. Tokugawa’s forces hold out until a lowly footman named Torii Suneemon gives his life to bring Oda and Tokugawa reinforcements back to the troops at Nagashino. Oda’s innovative strategy with his arquebusiers defeats the famous Takeda cavalry charge and wins the day, but his military victories do nothing for him in the end. His own general, Akechi Mitsuhide, leads his army against him in a surprise attack at the temple of Honno-ji. Rather than be captured, Oda Nobunaga commits seppuku.
