Ye, that's what and who I was thinking of. And it's spelt Oda Nobunaga. Edit: Ya, I knew the theme of the event, but I could not remember the detals, since I read about it in a book highly based on the rise of Tokugawa Ieyasu, just with names changed. It's called Shogun, a pretty good read, and most of it's true history. (like I said, names and minor events changed to suit the story).
