The Irvington Civil War is a conflict fought between the government of the Democratic State of Irvington and the Irvington Opposition, led by the Irvington Communist Forces/


Prelude

After protests against the government grew larger, groups began to take up arms. It started in East Irvington, where a non-lethal rocket was launched into a detachment of national police. Later that day, rebel forces attacked an isolated woodland outpost in Sellic Woods, causing no casualties, but damaging the base. James Mitchell ordered the INP and the INA to respond with all force necessary. Both sides were generally poorly armed, with the INA/INP and rebels being armed with mostly nonconventional weaponry.


Eastern Village

Rebel forces soon seized Eastern Village and captured two soldiers on guard at the East Woods outpost. Local INP forces launched a counterattack, which was driven back by non lethal rockets (which injured one policeman). The INA arrived on the scene, firing six non lethal rockets at a rebel gun emplacement, but were forced back after an ambush by opposition forces. Government forces managed to hold the village, but the nearby woods were mostly under rebel control. Rebel forces attempted an offensive on March 19, but were pushed back by the INA. An INA counterattack on the 20th successfully took back part of the woods.

East Irvington Attack

Rebel forces launched two non-lethal rockets at drilling police officers, who then retreated (no one was injured). The rebels used this as a diversion for the Eastern Village attack.


Capital District Attack

Rebel forces launched six non-lethal rockets at the capital district, one civilian was injured. The attack was used to divert forces from the Eastern Village.

Capital District Offensive

After the attack in the Eastern Village, Rebel forces gathered, launching a dozen non lethal rockets at the Capital District. The INA attempted a counter attack, but were forced to retreat after encountering opposition. A civilian militia was formed to support the defense of the capital, with the siege lasting for around 24 hours before the rebels withdrew.

Battle of Lyndhurst

On April 10th, INP on bicycles discovered several rebels using Lyndhurst (which was outside the territory of the Independent State of Irvington) as a training ground. The INA raised a force a dozen strong (mostly professional soldiers with some militia) and proceeded to lyndhurst with a INP reserve. Committing all of their forces in the area, they marched on Lyndhurst. Upon their arrival, they faced off with a force of rebels half their size. The rebels were routed in open field combat, and launched several non lethal rockets in an attempt to cover their retreat. Later that day, a rebel patrol skirmished in the area with the INP reserve, which had been left behind to guard the area.

Later Skirmishes

On April 12th, the INP launched an offensive into the Eastern Village Woods, meeting no opposition and capturing rebel arms. A second offensive was launched on the 13th, which this time encountered a lone rebel on patrol, who was captured (though later released after confiscation of their weapons).

End of the War

By the 20th, rumors had begun that the rebels were deserting in mass after their failures in the Capital Offensive. On the 22nd, INP officers captured 3 surrendering rebels, who handed over their weapons and were promptly released. On the 1st of May, the Eastern Woods were entirely under INA control. After this date, no further action occurred.
