General Forlough was given a veritable carte blanche on men and material to resume offensive operations. Using striker regiments raised and trained by his predecessor, he began a scorched-earth policy. Amongst his first targets was the world of Caldwell.
Forlough first blockaded the target system and demanded an unconditional surrender of all Taurian forces within 30 days. When the allotted time elapsed, the General's strikers had total freedom, not only to destroy the determined Taurian defenders, but to also render useless any and all sources of economic and military potential. While bands of Star League Marauders and Warhammers ravaged the countryside, destroying crops, food stores, and munitions depots, Forlough's navy warded off repeated attempts by the Taurian fleet to break through the blockade.
Caldwell fell to the Star League in November 2584.
