So when they arrived in orbit on 24 August, Petersen placed most of his DropShips in a variety of parking orbits that would allow them to intercept any ships attempting to either leave or reach the planet. He did land approximately two battalions of mixed forces on the planet—a move that the High Command would later categorize a “reconnaissance in force” and thus not a technical violation of orders.
The world was all but undefended, and Petersen’s “reconnaissance” forces — he rotated mixed battalions through the operation every few days, giving his troops both combat experience and the chance to get their “land legs” under them again — ranged across the face of the world for three weeks before the General finally received direct orders to withdraw to David. The ELH left the Homam system on 7 September, having all but destroyed the world’s defending forces, but showing nothing else for the effort.
