The Great Patriotic War is a term used to describe the conflict that arose as a result of the 2010 A1 Political Crisis. The war involves the Federated Republics of A1 and the Federal State of A1 fighting over territory in New Central.
See main article 2010 A1 Political Crisis
The roots of the conflict are essentially from tensions arising between the Chairman of A1, Rob Gribbon and former Deputy Chairman Tomas Caulfield. These tensions caused a split whereby the Federal State of A1 was founded.
Invasion of New Central
However, following this takeover of land, the A1DF declared martial law in Ppritville and resolved to defend A1's capital. This resulted in heated verbal exchanges between some A1 People's Army soldiers and troops loyal to the Federal State, but resulted in no physical fighting. This resulted in Ppritville being retained by the A1DF.
Planned Lichthalzen Attack
On the 26th March, the A1 News Service published a story in which "Classified documents obtained by the A1 News Service from the United A1 Party" showed a "...planned propaganda and communications attack on Lichthalzen".
This resulted in a stern reaction from Chairman Gribbon, promising to defend Lichthalzen if necessary.
On the 4th April, Chairman Gribbon offered a "peace conference", an offer that was accepted by Chancellor Tomas Caulfield a few days later, following extensive consultation with his government. The conference began on the 8th of April, with a truce in place since the 7th April.
Following many days of negotiations, the two negotiating parties reached an agreement, dubbed the 'Caulfield Convention'.
