During horseback chases, how do you defeat the enemy general?

  1. I can get close to the general but all of my swings seem to do nothing at all and the general gets away. It's frustrating since it's the only part of the game I've yet to figure out. Any help would be most appreciated.

  1. From the manual:

    Horseback Pursuit

    If the opposing army retreats from battle, you will have the
    opportunity to attack them as they run. Mount your horse and give
    chase to the retreating foot soldiers, slashing through those who come
    in contact with your mighty sword. Swing your sword to the left or
    right, slaughtering soldiers on either side. Trample those fools who
    would stand in the way of your charge. But beware, contact with enemy
    soldiers will frighten your horse (it may throw you if you run over
    too many men).

    Wathc out for trees, rocks, and bushes as you rush toward the
    retreating soldiers. If your horse collides with any of these
    hazards, it will send you tumbling to the ground, causing great
    suffering.

    If you defeat the fleeing soldiers, you will come face-to-face with
    the enemy general. Attack him with your sword and don't miss. This
    is an opportunity for great honor - to take home the head of the
    Taira!

    NOTE: Do not trample the enemy general with your horse; it will bring
    great dishonor and a loss of leadership ability to the Minamoto.
