Planetary History[edit]

The Jihad[edit]

Tsingtao was one of the worlds hit during Duke George Hasek's Operation Sovereign Justice in 3068. Captured with little resistance by the 59th Strike Regiment of the Illician Lancers, as the Capellan Confederation began a counterattack Vong's Grenadiers landed on Tsingtao and established a beachhead from which General Bradley and the 59th Strike couldn't displace them. The Grenadiers then locked the Illician Lancers forces into a war of attrition. With both commands reduced to half-strength through the constant fighting, the AFFS supply lines to Tsingtao dried up, leaving the 59th with little choice but to retreat to Redfield, leaving Tsingtao in Capellan hands once more.[32]
