During the [[Amaris Civil War]], the three CAAN regiments based on Carver V became the stuff of legends in their defense against the [[Rim Worlds Republic Military]].  The Marines held off countless Republican assaults for six years, nearly running out of food and ammo until the [[Eridani Light Horse]] fought through the blockade to deliver supplies. They would finally be relieved by General [[Aleksandr Kerensky]] in [[2773]].<ref name=SL171/>

====Operation APOTHEOSIS====
 
 
The siege of Carver V effectively began in [[2766]], when forces from the [[Rim Worlds Republic]] were deployed onto the planet under the orders of [[First Lord]] [[Richard Cameron|Richard Cameron II]]. The Republican forces were under the command of [[General]] [[Noriko Milton-Davis]] and were expected to work their way into control of the major military bases and facilities on Carver V, as well as putting themselves in a position to attack the [[SLDF]] units present both directly and via pre-placed booby traps and bombs. However, the Republican deployment was hampered by the senior SLDF officer on Carver V, General [[Saul van der Kolk]], who was both the senior officer on world and the overall commander of all of the SLDF's Cavalry, Armored, Aerospace and Naval Regiments, commonly referred to as CAAN Regiments. Van der Kolk ordered the Republicans deployed to Quantico to store all of their nuclear weapons within the main nuclear weapons locker within the facility, as well as only allowing limited numbers of Republican personnel to be deployed within the Quantico facility in the first place; the bulk of Milton-Davis' forces were instead deployed in tiny encampments around the various islands on Carver V.<ref name="H:LoTV1p82">''Historical: Liberation of Terra Volume 1'', p. 82, "The Marines Of Carver V"</ref>

Van der Kolk quickly mustered the defending SLDF personnel available to eliminate the remaining Republican forces on Quentin, even as Milton-Davis consolidated her hold over the various other islands on Carver V, including the capital, Korce, and the Reinhardt island chain. Van der Kolk's forces included three full CAAN Regiments, each one of which was a training regiment consisting of personnel working towards their CAAN rating led by experienced veteran CAAN trainers. The large SLDF contingent on Quentin and the lack of any Republican foothold or access to the island left Milton-Davis stymied; lacking the overwhelming numbers or force needed to crack the defenses, the Republicans were forced to resort to probing attacks and waiting for reinforcements, the first of which wouldn't arrive until April, four months after Operation APOTHEOSIS had begun.<ref name="H:LoTV1p82"/>

====Liberation====
 
Carver V remained contested over the next seven years, but it was not until the end of March [[2773]] that SLDF reinforcements, in the form of the [[Eridani Light Horse]], would arrive. Amaris ordered numerous counter-attacks but his forces failed to dislodge the SLDF hold on the planet.<ref name="H:LoTV1p133">''Historical: Liberation of Terra Volume 1'', p. 133, "Follow-On Actions"</ref> Carver V's full liberation from the Amaris Empire finally came about in 2775; this, coupled with the tale of the marine garrison's unbroken resistance to Amaris for over eight years, provided the SLDF with a morale boost as they drove closer to Terra.<ref name="H:LoTV1p140">''Historical: Liberation of Terra Volume 1'', p. 140</ref>
