Operation Thunderbolt was a Havenite large-scale naval operation against the Manticoran Alliance that was carried out in 1919 PD. It marked the resumption of hostilities between the Republic of Haven and the Alliance and the beginning of the Second Havenite-Manticoran War.

Outcome[edit | edit source]

With the exception of Trevor's Star, where Admiral Javier Giscard chose to withdraw when confronted with a combined RMN/Grayson defense force, and Silesia, where Admiral Honor Harrington decisively defeated Admiral Lester Tourville's Second Fleet, the Republican Navy recaptured virtually all systems lost in the First Havenite-Manticoran War. (HH10)

Hamish Alexander stated that with the 2 exceptions of Honor's victory (Havenite defeat) and the withdrawal at San Martin (no battle), they were back to "square 1" before the war had begun. (HH10)

In the Star Kingdom, the staggering defeat led to the resignation of Prime Minister Michael Janvier, the fall of the High Ridge government and the suicide of First Lord of the Admiralty Edward Janacek. (HH10)

The losses suffered required an alliance with the Andermani Empire and the annexation of Silesia. (HH10)
