"Székely. Why have you called? There's no point in delaying the inevitable."
"I wanted to save you the trouble of bloodshed, Colonel."
"A warning. Turn back while you can. You don't want to do this."
"It's far too late to save your skin now, Székely. Rather convenient of you to warn me, while my men are ten kilometers from the city limits."
"This isn't for me. Spare your soulless soldiers and tell them to go home. You know you won't win."
"They won't go home. They're going to march into your pitiful little nation, and burn it down. I'm doing the new world a favor by dismantling your fledgling red state. Don't subject your men to the struggle and lay down your arms."
"I'll see you on the battlefield, Colonel."
The Battle of Narva was the Epsilon Authority's attempt to invade, and subsequently conquer the territories of Brigada Roza, during the late months of the War of the Baltic. The battle took place across 2 days and 2 nights, finishing on the morning of November 26th, 2018. Brigada Roza's victory in this battle lead to the Epsilon Authority completely withdrawing from most of its possession in the mainland Baltic area, the War of the Baltic concluding soon afterward.
While the assault inflicted more casualties on the Brigada Roza militiamen than on the VIKTOR mercenaries the Epsilon Authority employed to fight the battle, Brigada Roza deployed tactics learned throughout the City 45 Uprising years earlier to great effect, inflicting enough casualties to force a retreat of transhuman forces. The complete repulsion of the attack galvanized Brigada Roza high command to mount a counteroffensive, and eventually chase all Epsilon Authority military presence out of the Baltics. The victory against what seemed to be the remnants of the Universal Union bolstered popular support of Brigada Roza in the area. This battle concluded the War of the Baltic, which, at the time, had been a continuous campaign of retreat of Brigada Roza militias across the territory they loosely held. With neither side possessing the proper military capability to keep pressing the attack, fighting halted. By January of next year, Brigada Roza established the Northwestern Republic, beginning the transition to a democratic civilian government.
