[[Shibata Katsuie]] / [[Sasa Narimasa]] ([[Oda Nobunaga]]) vs. Takemata, Yoshie, ect. ([[Uesugi Kagekatsu]])
+
Following the death of [[Uesugi Kenshin]] in [[1578]], the Uesugi domain had fallen into a year-long civil war (see [[Otate no Ran]]). Taking advantage of the Uesugi's feud, Shibata Katsuie and Sassa Narimasa, Oda Nobunaga's spearheads in the [[Hokuriku]] region, began a drive for the borders of [[Echigo province|Echigo]] itself. By [[1581]] the Oda had taken [[Toyama castle]] and were entrenched in [[Etchu province|Etchû]], which Shibata and Sassa set about clearing of both Uesugi and [[Ikko-Ikki|Ikkô-ikki]] resistance.
    +
Realizing the gravity of the situation, Uesugi Kagekatsu reinforced [[Uozu Castle]] with a number of his important retainers. In May 1582, the Oda attacked both [[Matsukura castle|Matsukura]] and Uozu Castles. After a bitter struggle, Uozu fell in the first week of June and the Uesugi presence in Etchû was all but eliminated. Yet, as fate would have it, Oda Nobunaga himself was killed by [[Akechi Mitsuhide]] just days later, and the Uesugi would be granted a reprieve.
