The myth of Uesugi and Takeda’s “tactical brilliance”

Just finished the podcasts on the Sengoku period and was wondering about the pop culture myth that both Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen were tactical geniuses. Is this myth based on any sources from the period or is it a construct of modern pop culture?

I'm pretty sure both have their roots in the Kōyō Gunkan, though Kenshin's is magnified by the Hokuetsu Gundan and Kanhasshū Kosenroku, and then there's the rumors & stories collection of the Jōzankidan.

Thank you for the responses. Just wanted to say I appreciate what the guys at SA do to help bring some of us “pop culture educated” folks out of the dog and into authentic Japanese history 👍🏻
