Caesar Julius O'Reilly had intended to use more forces for this first wave, but was forces to use additional resources to put down small insurrections and apparent Pirate raids throughout his realm. Nevertheless, the first invasion wave was brilliantly executed, and Maximillian fell in mere weeks. It didn't hurt that the Circinians saw the Marian invaders as liberators as much as conquerors.
With a second wave launching soon after, the Circinians retaliated with a rearguard attack on Maximillian with forces disguised as elements of IV Legio. Though suicidal attacks did little damage to the Marian military machine, they did tie up the Caesar's support units further, forcing them to return and secure the world.
Though a state of war still technically exists between the Marian Hegemony and the Circinus Federation - President McIntyre ordered the Caesar's diplomatic envoys returned to Alphard decapitated - the fighting has been over for more than a year.
