EDEN invasion of Serbia
The EDEN invasion of Serbia, also known as the Battle for Serbia, is an ongoing conflict between multiple EDEN forces against Serbia and its allied ONE nations. The war began on May 1, 2011 and represents the first major war in which EDEN attacked, and invaded, the country of Serbia.
The EDEN goal is to completely annex Serbia as retaliation for the damage the later country inflicted upon a number of nations after it had invaded neighboring countries during the expansion of ONE in the months before; including the Fourth Balkan War, ONE invasion of Bulgaria, and Serbia-Russia War.
As a result, the conflict is a part of the much larger World War V, and would be the first time that joint EDEN/Terra forces invaded an Eastern European signatory of the ONE alliance in a response to ONE's expansion during the global conflict.
The invasion began on April 28, 2011 when Bosnia and Herzegovina successfully attacked, and conquered, the Serbian region of Western Serbia after rumors of a Serbian incursion into Bosnia spread throughout the New World.
After the Bosnia and Herzegovina attack, Serbia would successfully resistance war Western Serbia back to original ownership, however, would soon face additional threats to it homeland when the countries of Romania, Croatia, and Bulgaria joined their Bosnian allies in the conflict by declaring Serbia as their natural enemy.
Formal EDEN engagements would begin on 1 May 2011, which resulted in Serbia facing invasion on four fronts.
In the Western Theater, Poland had been ejected from the Americas during both the Poland-Brazil War and concurrent USA-Poland War, while Spain would face a number of defeats and invasion itself during the USA-Spain War. In addition, ONE forces had begun to suffer loses as a result of French resistance after the ONE invasion of France.
Serbia itself also faced a stalling defeat in the Serbia-Russia War, as well as suffering loses after the ONE invasion of Bulgaria and the resulting Third Bulgarian Independence War, in which Serbian territorial advancements had been pushed back and its Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) ally had lost control of its own homeland, thus reduced to only its conquered holdings in Italy.
At the same time, ONE-allies would faces further fronts in the Second Baltic War, further draining their military resources.
The EDEN invasion of Serbia is a grueling war, with Serbia meeting out a strong resistance as it slowly began to succumb to attacks from a number of fronts. Though Serbia would hold strongly against initial assaults, with the entry of larger forces such as Croatia, Romania, and Bulgaria, the defense of Serbian homeland would begin to crumble.
On May 3, 2011 the largely populated Serbian region of Belgrade would fall to Croatia and its EDEN allies.
