First Succession WarEdit

New Mendham was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[11]

War of 3039Edit

New Mendham was assaulted by the Davion Light Guards and 1st Chisholm's Raiders.[45] As the AFFS troops slowly spread out to pacify the world, the 1st Amphigean Light Assault Group and 2nd Amphigean Light Assault Group landed on the world. Their normal tactics of fast hit and run would be useless against the Davion Light Guards, so the Amphigean's commander called for local patriots to tie down the mobile AFFS units.[46] These tactics were effective, tying down the AFFS for three weeks. In response, the commander of the AFFS released a combat command into search and destroy operations that targeted military targets, communications, and power lines while not inflicting civilian casualties. The goal to create planetwide panic as the loyal Combine citizens couldn't figure out where the Federated forces were succeeded brilliantly. The Amphigean LAGs were forced to deal with panicked civilians, greatly slowing them. This allowed the Chisholm Raiders to attack the Amphigean units, but the opponents could never come to a significant battle. Instead they spent months fighting inconclusive battles until the AFFS High Command sent the recall order.[47]
