Planetary History[edit]

Bromhead is an arid world with two large continents. The northernmost continent (Zanzibar) has milder weather and contains most of the cities and other settlements. The southern continent (Salazaar) is a giant desert split by a massive mountain range. Several peaks in the Salaam-Zurkan range are higher than Terra's Mount Everest. The AFFS has long used Salazaar as a training ground for desert and mountain survival.[1]

Prior to the FedCom Civil War Bromhead was home to three units: The Second Davion Guards, the 22nd Avalon Hussars, and Hansen's Roughriders. When the civil war started, the commanders of the three units met and discussed the situation. Finding that the Avalon Hussars and Roughriders were going to support Katherine Steiner-Davion the Second Davion Guards withdrew from the world rather than engage in a pointless conflict.[50] This action spared Bromhead the fighting that engulfed other worlds.

Bromhead was strategically unimportant during the FedCom Civil War, and so saw no action. Indeed its defenders were stripped and reassigned elsewhere.[51]

The Jihad[edit]

In 3068 Duke George Hasek launched an invasion of the Capellan Confederation under the name Operation SOVEREIGN JUSTICE, ostensibly to liberate the worlds of the St. Ives Compact.[52] The CCAF responded with Operation THUNDERSTRIKE, which not only liberated the worlds seized by the Capellan March forces but which also struck back at worlds in the Federated Suns. Bromhead was one of the worlds hit, with CCAF troops attacking on the 18th of February 3069 as part of a wave of attacks that hit eight seperate systems on the same day.[53]

In response to the asteroid bombardment of Taurus and evidence that implicated the Federated Suns, the Taurian Concordat launched a second invasion of the Federated Suns during the Jihad. Bromhead was an early target, captured during late June 3074. The Taurian conquest of Bromhead involved using nuclear weapons against AFFS pickets, as did the campaigns on Brockway and Midale, resulting in more than ten million Federated Suns civilian and military deaths[31][32]
