The Oda Clan was a family of Japanese daimyos who were to become an important political force in the unification of Japan. Oda Nobunaga (1534 -- 1582) played a key role in shaping the course of history in feudal Japan. His policy of unifying a country controlled by many feuding daimyo (warlords) was furthered in a series of victories characterized by brilliant tactics and the first organized use of firearms. His unification policy became a reality under his successor, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, shortly before the end of the 16th century.
