The flashpoint came as Duchess Amanda Hasek marched on Victoria. She had two goals in mind: First was to capture Victoria and its valuable factories in order complete her second goal; to impress the First Prince. Although the conflict lasted less than two years, by the end, three additional realms had become embroiled in the fighting. The Federated Suns ultimately would gain three worlds but would lose nine others.
Federated Suns Front
Duchess Hasek's forces started the conflict by bypassing the border systems and invading Zanzibar, Jacson, and Menke. HPG stations were considered priority targets in order to maintain surprise and prevent the Capellans from calling in reinforcements. The invasion of Zanzibar went smoothly. Jacson fell quickly as well, but the defending mercenary force Lethal Injection was able to escape the planet and inform the Capellan government of the invasion. Following the battle at Jacsonm a mutiny among the 8th Syrtis Fusiliers prevented the unit from moving on to its next objective.
Menke turned into a quagmire as the world was unexpectedly reinforced by two regiments of McCarron's Armored Cavalry. Duchess Hasek threw more and more troops into the battle, diverting them from planned second wave targets. After two months of battle, the Capellan forces dislodged the invaders.
