About this Item

(Subject: Osprey: Men-At-Arms) In 1543 three Portuguese merchants entered Japan, bringing with them the first firearms the Japanese had ever seen: simple matchlock muskets called arquebuses. They proved a decisive addition to the Japanese armoury, as previously the Samurai had fought only with bow, sword and spear. In 1575 Samurai Oda Nobunaga, arranged his arquebusiers in ranks three deep behind a palisade and proceeded, quite literally, to blow his opponent’s cavalry to pieces, marking the beginning of a new era in Japanese military history.
