Timeline

2162

Armed conflict ripped through South America, as Koslovic, Frieden and UN forces clashed over ideological differences, sparking additional conflicts off-planet, such as the Argyre Planitia Campaign. This war brought a great deal of suffering to the people of Earth, and caused an enormous famine.

2170

In the post-war period, there were massive population surges, resulting in overpopulation. Coupled with the destruction and famine bred by the Rain Forest Wars, the economy threatened to destabilize.

Trivia

  • A Soldier's Tale: Rainforest Wars was written about this event. This book is a favorite of CPO Franklin Mendez, and described as a "military classic" in Halo: Ghosts of Onyx. [2]
  • Two of Admiral Preston Cole's great-grandfathers (on his mother's side) served in the Rain Forest Wars. One did not survive. The other, Captain Oliver Franks, received the Bronze Star.[3]
  • An early timeline had the Rain Forest Wars take place in 2170. This was changed a few months later in development.[4]
