During the Clan Invasion, the Jade Falcon and FedCom forces clashed at three locations: Brigham Rollo, Pickrock Hill, and Santina Trepass.
Anywhere was one of the worlds targetted by Maxwell Rowe during his efforts to build up the Rim Worlds Republic, beginning in 2330; Rowe began by negotiating a series of trade and barter pacts with worlds like Anywhere, carefully avoiding any suggestions of a military alliance, defensive or otherwise. Rowe added offers of social and technological favors including access to new Rim Worlds Republic university facilities over time, and through guile and slow but steady progress persuaded the natives of Anywhere to join the Republic.
By the end of the Age of War Anywhere was a member of the Apollo Province of the Rim Worlds Republic. Civil war erupted in the Rim Worlds Republic in 2575, with the factions polarised around those loyal to First Consul Gregory Amaris and those loyal to the Rift Republican Army and the Rim Provisional Government.
The Star League eventually decided to intervene in the civil war in support of Gregory Amaris, and in 2579 assembled Task Force MAILED FIST to help secure Amaris' control over the Rim Worlds Republic. A multinational force headed by the Star League Defense Force, Task Force MAILED FIST was responsible for executing Operation MAILED FIST, the name given to the military intervention. The first wave of attacks focused on securing significant worlds near Apollo, until a destructive raid on Alarion by the 4th Amaris Fusiliers in retaliation prompted the SLDF to alter its initial strategy for the campaign, the focus shifted to reducing Rim Worlds Army concentrations throughout the Republic and the capture of key worlds.
In late 2584 the SLDF changed tactics again; a number of major RWA units had been destroyed or captured, and the focus for the campaign shifted to capturing worlds of strategic importance, but the campaign was slowed by the greatly increased resistance offered by the RWA and local civilian populations, prompted by atrocities performed by the Draconis Auxiliary Corps when they captured Nightwish in mid-2584.
General Nathan Isaacson assigned a division from IV Corps, the Eleventh Royal Division, to the conquest of Anywhere in 2594. The Star League forces successfully took control of Lackhove, defeating the local militia forces, and remained in place as the local garrison until the Eleventh was redeployed for the invasion of Steelton in 2595.
Star League Era
Clan Jade Falcon Invasion
In March 3050 Anywhere was a target during the first wave of the Clan Jade Falcon's invasion of the Inner Sphere. The planetary defenders included the AFFC 2nd New Ivaarsen Chasseurs and the Anywhere Militia. The 8th Falcon Regulars of the Vau Galaxy lead the assault on Anywhere, and the battle for control of the planet was fought three locations: Pickrock Hill, Brigham Rollo, and Santina Trespass. The 8th Falcons’ speed in their attacks on the Chasseurs caused the AFFC combined-arms force to make several costly mistakes which led to the RCT losing 60% of their forces and the Federated Commonwealth losing control of the planet to the Falcons.
Clan Ice Hellion Invasion
During the Jihad, Clan Ice Hellion launched invasions of a number of Clan Jade Falcon worlds including Anywhere. The Ice Hellions captured the planet briefly in June 3071 with saKhan Conner Rood ahead of his Beta & Zeta Galaxies task force. However, the Ice Hellions were later repulsed by Falcon forces in October 3071.
