Taylor H. Miles, upon hearing about a survivor from the battle.[1]

The Battle of New Jerusalem was an engagement in the Human-Covenant War. It was fought on the UNSC colony world of New Jerusalem in Cygnus System, between the UNSCDF and the Covenant, some time before the Battle of Earth.[2]

The Battle

Very little is known about the battle itself, other than that the 26th Marine Expeditionary Force, a part of a Rapid Offensive Picket, suffered severe casualties during it.[2]
