I have the ability to train kisho ninja in one of my settlements. How do I use them in battle? The encyclopedia entry doesn't really say their strengths and against whom.

They hide anywhere and everywhere, even while walking. They are usefull for surprise flanking, and for jumping out and killing the enemy general. Or destroying gates/ climbing up an undefended wall in a siege.

Once in a multiplayer battle I rode a cavalry unit off to the side to try and flank the enemy army, but almost as soon as it moved it spotted a kisho Ninja unit creeping up on my general from behind. If I had not moved my cavalry I would not have spotted it and probably lost the battle.

Kisho Ninja really helped me out when I assaulted Kyoto as the Shimazu. Had a few of Ninja units in my armies, and with some sneaky attacks, backed up with two other full stack armies, they are a great unit to have.

Do they have a bonus against generals and their bodyguards?

What is better, getting 1 last volley of bombs in or counter-charging?

No bonus vs generals. They're just useful for that because the player may not notice his general being attacked until too late.

Liam, I think they have a high melee defence so allow them to charge you, but the losses were catastrophic.
