During the early months of the war in 1935, the Imperial Alliance was able to gain the upper hand over the Federation.
In March of 1935, the Federation launched a counter offensive named Operation Northern Cross, seeking to land a decisive strike at the capital of the Imperial Alliance and crush the imperial morale. The operation was foiled by the early winter of 1935, and the Federation and the Empire signed an armistice that didn't last long, and effectively marked the beginning of the stalemate stage of EWII.
Also in March of 1935, the Empire launched a separate invasion of Gallia with the intent to capture the small country's large ragnite reserves to supplement their own. The invasion was called off after the commander of the Gallia Invasion Force, Crown Prince Maximilian, was killed in battle. The Empire and Gallia signed a peace treaty that held at least until the end of 1937.
In late 1936, the Federation secretly sponsored a rebellion in Gallia, hoping that a new government would join the Federation or at least be more favorable to Federation influences. The civil war ended in late 1937 with the defeat of the rebel forces.
As of 1937, the Empire and the Federation each has made gains and losses in territory, with the end of the war nowhere in sight.
