Planetary History[edit]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

Moritz was one of the worlds attacked in the opening wave of Operation GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the major Lyran Commonwealth offensive of the Fourth Succession War. The attack on Moritz was intended to capitalise on the historic pattern of assigning new recruits to Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units at specific times of the year, a bad habit that the DCMS had fallen into over the years. Defending Moritz at the time was the Fifth Sun Zhang Academy Cadre, and the intelligence was correct - the Cadre was understrength due to the combination of recent transfers and graduations. The LCAF dropped the Eighth Donegal Guards on Moritz, and the resulting campaign was fast and furiously fought. When the Guards broke through the Cadre's lines and drove towards the planetary capital, New Coffton, the Fifth retreated from Moritz. By the time the Fifth left Moritz almost half of its personnel were either missing, wounded or dead.[18]

Clan Invasion[edit]

Moritz was invaded by Clan Wolf in October 3050 during the Fourth Wave of Operation Revival, with major battles taking place at Falun, the Eda Valley and Gnesta Valley. The planet's political and economic capital, New Coffton, was surrounded by the Moritz mountain range, which gave the Moritz Defense Brigade a defensive advantage against 4th Striker Cluster's Trinaries First, Fourth and Fifth Mixed Services. The defender's lack of areospace support provide critical, as the fighter Stars of the mixed Trinaries were able to recon hidden defensive positions and support the ground forces' torturous advance through the mountains. By the time Wolf forces reached the city the planetary government surrendered..[43]
