Second battle of Azukizaka, 1564
In this battle in Japan the famous samurai general Tokugawa Ieyasu fought the local Ikko-ikki. As he often did he led from the front and took a decisive part in the personal combat, during which he was hit by several bullets which were slowed by his armour and logged in his under garments.
