The Battle of the Great Bear [1](also known as the Battle of Groombridge-1830) was a major battle in the early years of the Human-Covenant War.

Background

The human fleet, consisting of 17 ships, engaged 3 enemy warships, destroying the enemy force but losing a total of 11 Destroyers in the process. Two of the Covenant ships were destroyed directly in combat, while the third crash-landed on a planets' surface.

An Elite survivor was recovered and interrogated personally by Admiral Cole himself, allowing the UNSC to finally learn something about their enemy - that the Covenant were wiping out humans because they had been deemed "unclean".[2]
