Redfield boasts several large plains well-suited to growing crops and raising herd animals. In addition there are also several native lifeforms that are good sources of food. Unfortunately the most important aspect of Redfield is strategic: the system's star is so small that raiders can arrive at a jump point and be on the ground in a few hours, before the defenders have a chance to react. The wide open plains are also perfect for 'Mech and tank combat. This explains why Redfield has been subject to so many raids by the Capellan Confederation. 
As a border world within the Capellan Hegemony, Redfield was subject to heavy attacks from Kluanian pirates in 2305 and 2306. Hired by the Sarna Supremacy during the Capellan-Supremacy War, the pirates inflicted heavy damage on a number of Capellan border worlds, forcing the Hegemony to constantly redeploy troops to defend its worlds rather than continuing to stage attacks on Sarna.
The Federated Suns had formed in 2317, and when the Muskegon Empire joined the Federated Suns in 2318, the Federated Suns inherited a dispute with the Chesterton Trade Federation along with a border with at least one Capellan state - and when the Marlette Association joined the Federated Suns in 2324, the Federated Suns shared a border with almost every major nation in the Capellan Zone. That led to numerous border skirmishes and contested worlds, including Redfield. As Terra's power began to rise after James McKenna overthrew the Terran Alliance government and installed the Terran Hegemony, the Redfield system was taken away from the Capellan Hegemony. The Terran Hegemony seized 11 independent worlds within the Capellan Zone between 2316 and 2335, as well as siding with the Federated Suns and Free Worlds League when it came to any disputed sytems - systems which included Redfield and the nearby system of Stein's Folly, as well as several other systems in the area.
Despite the support the Terran Hegemony gave the Federated Suns' attempts to annex and keep Redfield, the apparent military weakness displayed by the Federated Suns during the conflict between the Suns and the Chesterton Trade Federation during three years of warfare during the late 2010s and early 2220s encouraged the various major nations of the Capellan Zone to launch attacks against Federated Suns forces on several worlds in and around the region of space dominated by the St. Ives Mercantile League. Despite suffering from growing morale problems and inferior supply lines, Redfield was recaptured and the Federated Suns seemed incapable of retaking the world.
That changed after an alliance of Capellan Commonality, St. Ives Mercantile League and Tikonov Grand Union forces were defeated on Lee in 2363; under the command of Reynard Davion, the Federated Suns military recaptured Refield and held it.
Star League Era
During the border conflict between the Capellan Confederation and Federated Suns in the latter years of the Star League, Redfield was contested again; in 2762 Redfield was retaken by the AFFS when forces from the Avalon Hussars used Vampire DropShips to deploy elite infantry in company strength on and around the various CCAF headquarters on the planet. The infantry promptly broke into the various headquarters and through seizing those facilities, secured control of the system. At the forefront of the Federated Suns campaign to seize Redfield were the Seventeenth Avalon Hussars, who had been acting as a training cadre to units within the Royalston thumb; the Seventeenth's campaign was supported by the Twenty-second Avalon Hussars, a regiment reactivated in 2752 after having been deactivated a century before as a result of the Council Edict of 2650. The Twentieth put in a solid performance, which the AFFS recognised by authorising the regiment to muster a fourth battalion, equipped primarily with materiel captured from the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces.
