The Jihad[edit]

In February 3076 the civilian population of Campbelton suffered more than two million casualties as a result of attacks aimed at the Word of Blake's Twentieth Militia Division, which was on Campbelton at the time. The attacks came from a rogue force, suspected of having ComStar origins, who attacked the Twentieth Division at various points around the planet. The raiders used tactical nuclear weapons as a part of their attacks, destroying three major population centres around which the Twentieth Division had placed defenses.[5][6]
