The Poland-Brazil War was a conflict between Poland and Brazil that began on April 18th, 2011. It was one of the fronts of the much larger World War V and part of a joint ONE invasion that included the Brazil-Spain War.

The war was a result of Poland attacking Brazil as part of the many trans-global ONE vs. Terra clashes caused when ONE began to expand its territories throughout the New World.

Background

For weeks prior to the initial Polish assault, Spain had been warring with Brazil during the Brazil-Spain War. Spain had been unable to make long-term advancements into Brazil and had encountered heavy counter-attacks as a result when Brazilian forces once again reentered the Spanish mainland. Thereafter, the two forces had been locked in a protracted battle cycle, mostly over the heavily contested Canary Islands.

Poland took over the front on April 18th, first by securing the Canary Islands, and then eventually pushing deep into the Brazilian homeland. This had been made possible by using Polish-occupied colonies in Mexico.

As Poland continued to conquer regions, South Africa would begin a series of resistance wars, liberating Brazilian colonies in the South African homeland that had been secured many months earlier. South Africa would then declare Brazil as a natural enemy on April 22nd, 2011, and unsuccessfully attempt to enter Brazil.

On April 23rd, 2011, Brazil launched a series of counter-attacks against Poland, recapturing its lost territories as Poland struggled with losses in both the USA-Poland War and resistance wars resulting from the ONE invasion of France and Second Poland-Germany War.

On April 24th, Brazil would recapture all of its original territories, eliminating any border between the nations, thus winning a significant Terra victory in World War V.

War
, part of the South American Theater of World War V. - April 22, 2011

Poland had gambled heavily on a victory in Brazil, forsaking its territories in the USA and allowing its ally, Mexico, to liberate its original territories that had been under Polish colonization.

The loss of Polish-held regions was in large part due to the Terra engineered plan, Operation: Asparagus Harvester, which focused on a coordinated series of resistance wars designed to liberate the regions of Southeast of Mexico, Canary Islands, and Lorraine, back to their original ownership. This action was followed by Operation Asparagus Harvester II, that aimed at resistance warring the regions of Center West of Brazil, Pays de la Loire, Hesse, New Jersey, and Southern Netherlands. These actions would take place in combination with a third resistance war action named Operation: How to steal a Car, in which Terra forces would also liberate North of Brazil, Parana and Santa Catarina, Gulf of Mexico, Lisboa, Baden-Wurttemberg, Brittany, and the former French capital of Paris Isle of France. The three operations represented a massively coordinated attack upon ONE forces, particularly Polish and Spanish occupied territories. Each action was successful and would represent a significantly damaging blow to ONE's expansion, both in the Americas and Europe.[1]

By eliminating the final Polish territories in South America, Brazil effectively knocked Poland out of the Western Hemisphere for the first time since a year before. Poland would then have to focus once again upon the European Theater of World War V.

During the Polish invasion, South Africa took the Brazilian losses as an opportunity to regain its original regions and then erroneously pushed the advantage by attacking the Brazilian mainland. Once Poland had been removed from the continent, Brazil then turned its attention back to South Africa and began reconquering its colonies.

The Poland-Brazil War was a significant victory for Terra forces, who up until that time had suffered substantial defeats and invasions. Once Poland had been eliminated from the Americas, it could no longer attack Terra states on multiple fronts at will, and would have to coordinate with its ONE allies to initiate future fighting in both North & South America by using its various Mutual protection pacts. By the same token, Terra states could then begin to place their forces on more focused fronts during the war.

By eliminating Poland from the theater, Brazil once again returned to having a border with Spain, who in the interim had once again taken possession of the Canary Islands. As a result, the Brazil-Spain War would enter a new phase of continued fighting.
