The Battle of Eastern City is one of the first battles of the Midwayan Civil War. It began in the morning when the Red Front issued a declaration of war against the Union of Midway, and attacked Aldebaran, Eastern City, Sand Islet City, and Kure City simultaneously. The Red Front had the element of surprise on their side, temporarily giving them the upper hand. Civilians were immediatly evacuated, and the Midwayan military immediately responded to the situation. The forces of the Red Front began taking ground, but were stopped by Midwayan soldiers. Midwayan soldiers almost immediatley began retaking ground. Eventually the battle reached a stalemate, at which point the neither side was gaining or losing ground. The battle went on until around 4:30 PM, when the Red Front retreated.
