The second issue game of #21.
BTW, this issue's topic is Japanese History (I think this is too broad).

2 battle games in one. This time, the topic is Hideyoshi.

I believe that though the Hideyoshi is very important, his most important battles Yamazaki, and Shizugatake are not popular even in Japan. So that, this issue is a fascinating readings and playings.

Issue game of 35 is a comeback salmon "Victory Denied".

The successful game of international game series, "Victory Lost" was actually a "struggle of army group Manstein" on Game Journal 4.
This game uses the same engine and covers one of the most popular topic in wargame, the smolensk campaign.

The game covers the important campaign between Hashiba Hideyoshi and Shibata Katsuie after death of Oda Nobunaga.
The game starts February and ends end of April in 1583.
The map covers the area among Kyoto, Kanegasaki, Gifu, and Anotsu.
As you can see from the scale above, this game covers the whole campaign of Shizugatake not only the final battle of Shizugatake.
