The NCR Arizona Offensive was an offensive conducted by the New California Republic Defense Force and allied factions, including New Vegas, The Brotherhood of Steel, the Dead Horses, the Boomers, and various rebel slave and anti-Legion insurgent factions, during in the latter stages of the NCR-Legion War in 2282. The offensive was facilitated by greater allocation of forces and resources to the war against the Legion thanks to the cessation of hostilities with the West Coast chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel in the Treaty of Lost Hills. Previously, the Mojave was seen as a low priority in a distant frontier, in comparison to the imminent threat of the Brotherhood. Newly allocated forces included mechanized and armored forces, which would prove devastating against the Legion, who had little armor or anti-tank weapons. In summer, 2282, the NCR and allied forces would take the Legion capital of Nova Roma (formerly Flagstaff), and the Third Caesar of the Legion, Aurelius of Phoenix. After the fall of Nova Roma, NCR and Allied forces attacked remaining Legion strongholds in the Magna Chasma (Grand Canyon) region to the north and the cities of Two Sun (formerly Tuscon) and Phoenix to the south. While Arizona was mostly under NCR control with the fall of Phoenix in fall 2282, ex-Legion raiders would continue to be a threat in the area for years to come.

BackgroundEdit

A couple months prior, Caeser's Legion had launched a second assault on the Hoover Dam seeking to take over the instilation. Knowing that it would have the balance of power fall in their favor and the New Vegas Strip would be open for them to take over, the legion marched forward lead by the Legate Lanius under the leadership of Caesar. Legion troops engaged NCR forces in the Hoover Dam but, the NCR managed to protect the dam and the legion was forced into retreat with almost all legion forces wiped out and the deaths of Lanius and Caeser, the legion was left in shambles and they fled eastward. The Mojave Wasteland fell to the NCR and was annexed into the nation while the legion fled to the east deep into the Midwest and into other places such as Arizona and established various holdouts there. The legion warred with the natives and the NCR found out and eventually invaded Arizona to push out the legion for good. In addition to the destruction of Legion, one of the main incentives for the NCR to launch the assault was economic- central Arizona, including the area around the Legion capital of Nova Roma (former Flagstaff) is home to a large forest of ponderosa pine, a significant portion of which survived the Great War, having been far from the major cities which were the targets of nuclear attacks.

AftermathEdit

The offensive ended in victory for the NCR who successfully expelled the legion out of Arizona and annexed all areas that were under their control prior to the invasion. Most of Arizona was annexed into the NCR and plans were made to annex Arizona into the NCR as a new state, but many debated on whether or not it should be either a state or an independent protectorate instead, but Arizona was within the field of NCR influence regardless. Caesar's Legion suffered yet another major defeat and were forced to retreat once again with some fleeing to New Mexico while some more desperate legionnaires escaped either down south into Northern Mexico or up north into the Mid West hoping that they could escape the NCR in the respective regions. The NCR however, further pursued the legion forces and launched numerous offensives into New Mexico and in Northern Mexico while local governments, factions and even the weather of the Mid West delt with the legion forces hiding out there.
