The New Flanders Reconquest was an operation conducted by the United Kingdoms of The Danube and New Flanders and Her Commonwealth against the Arch duchy of New Flanders with the purpose of incorporating the latter into the Kingdom of New Flanders. The operation began on the 29th of June, 2018, when Danubine forces crossed the international border into the Archduchy's lands and instituted a military regime. The conflict ended de facto following the invasion and collapse of the Archduchy's defenses, however, de jure the conflict continues as Shorewell maintains the annexation to be illegal as per the Ehengntyre Accords and Nozax Declaration. Shorewell's continued recognition of the independence of the state, and the absence of an Instrument of Accession has prompted the Archduchy's status to be legally disputed, thus rendering the conflict ongoing. This status has been described by some as rendering the two in a frozen conflict.

Background

After the New Flanders Crisis, the United Kingdoms of The Danube and New Flanders and Her Commonwealth attempted to establish a military zone around the Archduchy to connect isolated parts of the Kingdom together. Shorewell protested heavily, maintaining that the Archduchy would effectively become an enclave of the Union. It proposed the establishment of a zone where neither side would station any military troops, thus allowing for access and an effective corridor to other nations for the Archduchy. The proposal was promptly rejected, followed by King Alex authorizing an invasion of the Archduchy in hopes of settling the dispute through military means.

Conflict

The invasion was launched at about 5:24 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), having notified the Sultan of his plans 15 minutes prior. 10 Danubine forces entered into the Archduchy, disestablished the government, and effectively occupied the state, as it remains till today. Shorewell believed that the ivasion proved the ill will harbored by the Union against the Archduchy, something which it had repeatedly expressed before during negotiations. The short conflict ended with a complete de facto annexation of the nation into the Union, though the Shorewellese government maintains such an annexation is illegal, and recognizes the complete sovereignty and independence of the Archduchy. The Archduchy's status as a protected state of Shorewell, and thus the invasion is recognized as an attack on the Sultanate itself.
