Short Summary Edit
Full Summary Edit
Chapter I: A journalist's memory of The Eastern Front Edit
June 1927 Unification Era. The multinational coalition forces that consisted of soldiers from the Francois Republic, the United Kingdom of Albion, the Russy Union, remnants of the Legadonia Entente Alliance and the Grand Duchy of Dacia, and volunteers from the Unified States encircled a combat group of The Empire Army that protruded at the forefront of the devastated battlefield.
Even though the three divisions participating in the siege outnumbered the surrounded combat group, The Empire had the most fortified defense and elite units outmatched their unit's skills that could not be broken by simple tactics. The young war correspondent Andrew learned that the name of the unit they were fighting against was "Rerugen Combat Group", commanded by one obscure Colonel Rerugen.
Chapter II: The night before Andromedā Edit
Unification Era late May 1927. General Zettour was called to spare time to attend a meeting between the members of the Imperial Chiefs of Staff that seeking peace and politicians that ordering the military to seek continuation of the war. For the politician, the continuance of the war would bring the Empire to prevent economic crisis (but it was all for their own business partner's sake) and it was widely supported by the citizens by considering the survey. Additionally, The Empire royal government seek for further victories and battles too.
General Zettour and the other general staffs just gave in and followed what they asked because it was for the Emperor's wishes. When he arrived to his office, as he sat down to relax, he read the reports in the Eastern Front. He just sighed in the bad conditions of the people fighting in the place. He called them "leftovers" as the "prosperity" of the Empire sent in the area. When he didn't like the amount of casualties and how the commanders leading it failed to stop the Rus Union, he decided to go to the Eastern front to lead it by himself.
He was escorted personally by General Rudendorf in the train station.
Few days later, Lt. Col. Tanya von Degurechaff, acted as commander of "Rerugen Combat Group/ Salamander Combat Group" (although Rerugen told her that all the credit will be taken by him whether she failed or succeed) under the direct control of the General Staff Headquarters, was ordered to go to the Eastern Front HQ. She was shocked and stunned by Gen. Zettour appearance in the Eastern Front Headquarters. She felt nervous when he realized the "Battle Team" concept she wrote and wanted to use it to defeat the enemy.
The invasion strategy 'Andromeda' that came from her thesis was imitated by the Empire. It stated, A-Team front, which carries out concentration of troops to the southern Entente Alliance, and the B-Team front, which is responsible for its side defense. Its goal is to capture the resource and industry area of Rus Union, but not destroy the field army of Union. Supreme Governing Council asked General Staff to capture it. Andromeda is named by Zettour, meaning 'something too far to reach'. (Read: Operation Case Blue)
General Zettour told her that he was now the acting Highest Commander of Eastern Front Army. He would lead the operation. Without the authority of other staffs, he planned to use every available resources because he was not the kind of person who will proceed for free without falling behind.
He planned to crush and gave a heavy blow at the enemies morale. Tanya assumed he would use Team A to attack while the Team B would act as a reinforcement. However, it would be too risky for their division to do that because they had limited supplies and men to perform the plan. But for him, General had a different plan and wanted to use his trump card (wild card) the "Salamander Combat Group" to start with.
General Zettour commanded and ordered Tanya to act as the "bait" to lure an enemy to in a small place near from their long defensive line. Tanya got nervous when she realized they would like an extremely "poison bait" in her case.
Tanya accepted it even though they did not have much time with only them (SGC) to act as a decoy, she decided to make a strategy to make it succeed. If she succeed to this suicide mission, they could possibly motivate and raise the morale of the soldiers and got another credit from the Eastern Staff Headquarters.
Chapter III: Andromedā Edit
Unification Era June, 1927. The Position 528 of the Empire, the name of the city in japanese is ソルディム, which became known as the strong defensive place by the historians, was surrounded by the Entente Alliance (Allied Kingdom, Federation and Republic) forces which approximates of 4-5 divisions (100,000 soldiers and above).
Although the "Salamander Combat Group" had only plenty of food and ammunition, she was still struggled against the continuous battle in the field and occasionally being force herself by the General Staff to attack at night. Because they were limited of resources, she got an idea to steal some supplies from the enemies.
Due to some circumstances of raid, it began to be gradually irritated by her. They were pushed back by the air force of the enemy who was assisted by the Unified States, and by the astonishingly advanced aerodynamic units of other nation.
Tanya considered that the Rus Union released the mages before the Communist Party inauguration from the Raggeri (concentration camp).
On the other hand, General Rudersdorf leader of the Imperial Chief of Staff (General Staff) was now busy due to the absence of General Zettour his close and best friend.
In the Eastern Front HQ, General Zettour concluded in his plans if they want to win they need to turn the whole table against the enemy’s rage by one person.
Chapter IV: Encounter and Engage Edit
Attitudes of the Russy Army and other volunteers made the place as intentional isolated battlefield.
For the Federal Army, which is superior to the quantity, the "Salamander Combat Group” who posted at the base of the railway network base Position 528 knew they were struggled. The General of the place discussed to his staff that he was planning to create a siege to weaken the enemy. Thus, they could capture the place to cut off the Empire’s supply route. In the state without any supply, Tanya realized the plan due to continuous fighting of those enemies . She just stated in her mind if they had no supplies then they just gonna picked up the weapons and ammunitions from enemy's corpses nearby. In one night, she used a shovel to kill a Rus soldier to prevent it to make a sound during their first raid.
General Zettour commander of the Eastern Front decided to take his own action.
He requested to dispatch a reserve army for the rescue of the friendly troops.
Tanya assumed the intention of General Zettour from the short message and prepared for counterattack.
Chapter V: Pocket Edit
General Zettour went outside to survey the Imperial Army division and to supervise one after another.
He noticed that the battle situation had been getting worse than he expected for the Rus Union Army. They had new tanks and numbers but still outmatched by the enemy forces. He praised the opposing team of how far these opponents could stand by losing a lot of men in their side. He never thought his plan would work so well.
Meanwhile, Tanya secretly escaped from Position 528 position led by two mage company unit. She said that she will try to penetrate the back of the Rus Union and his allies to give aid for the rescue team.
However, the Entente Alliance military intelligence sensed her magical orb (due to fact they always monitored her movements) and alarmed the whole armed forces. They knew that she was the only person who was leading the place and the only person had the most powerful amount of mana in the field. The commander of Federal Army, Rus Union and other staffs got an idea. If an intimidating magical response disappeared from the Position 528, it would triggered for them the opportunity to use a full-scale attack. However there was one problem for that, he knew 2nd Lieutenant Mary Sue will try to follow the "Devil of the Rhine" with a single stroke and not to follow their orders. So he decided to go on the flow to defeat first the very ace of the Empire.
When they announced to the units nearby for the Position 528 captured strategy was postponed, the Entente forces and Federal Army pursued Tanya's 203rd Mage Battalion.
Likewise, 2nd Lt. Mary Sue immediately ran off to chase her arch-nemesis.
2nd Lt. Mary Sue used her Gospel/Prayer Magic to get near to Tanya. Tanya used immediately her deadly Artillery spell. However, it was repelled by her magical defense because of her orb stronger than her“Type-95 Elinium Orb”. Tanya decided to fight her by herself and made her units intercept the other units coming to them.
A fierce battle commenced in the sky. Tanya’s unit were outnumbered but well-trained while the combination of Rus Union Army and Entente Alliance were still no match for them.
There was no debris left, the circumference of Tanya, who swayed up the scoop and realized that being watch by General Zettour in the HQ made her do her duty to prevent being thought useless mere resources.
She decided to take the fight seriously even though she knew Mary Sue was still a kid. She finally used her Gospel/Prayer Magic resulting for Being X to smile when he finally feel the faith of Tanya. (Just imagined a girl begging for help with a floppy eyes)
The battle and chase ended when Tanya defeated Mary Sue. Her unconscious body was caught by Lilia Taneckha and brought her back to the nearest HQ. The units chasing them decided to retreat the battlefield. Tanya’s unit made the Empire raise their morale and motivate the citizen that they can still win.
They were able to rescue the units and brought them back safely.
Chapter VI: Hans von Zettour Edit
Tanya was called again in the Eastern HQ by General Zettour. She thought that counted casualties she made will give her a chance to take a day off. However, they discussed about the future of the Empire. General Zettour asked himself if they made a right decision in Position 528.
Although they won in Eastern side, the Western front (A-Team) were currently defeated in some reason maybe because it was lacked of leadership of General Zettour.
With The Empire condition in both cases, there was no other way.
Hence, he revealed to her that he had the same perspective as Tanya in this respect which made Tanya confused.
But as a soldier, moving politics directly went to the point for them to move fast.
Zettour’s expertism on "military government" invited Tanya von Degurechaff, the commander of the SGC, to become an ‘accomplice’ for his next plan which made Tanya realized that her day off will not come true. An another problem had been occurred in the process for her.
The next battlefield is "Home country".
