This is the middle sheet of a triptych design by Utagawa Yoshitomi 歌川芳富, published by Kiya Sōjirō in the 8th month of 1860.

The title of the design, given on the right sheet, is 「兄川大合戦裏崩図」 -- I think this is read "Anigawa daikassen ura kuzure zu". It's a depiction of the Battle of Anegawa (姉川の戦い) in 1570.

This Japanese-language page has quite a bit of information about the battle, and nice images of this design:
