The Galactic War (abbreviated GcW), known to the Covenant as the War of Inordinate Renaissance, was a massive conflict that engulfed a formidable portion of the Milky Way galaxy.
The war began in the year 2653 of the UNSC Military Calendar with the Forza incident, an unprovoked attack on a civilian freighter by Covenant privateers. Before long, tens of millions of military personnel were being deployed to and fro. This pattern was broken in 2666, however, when a previously unidentified species known as the Veer besieged the remote UNSC colony world Astanchia.
This looming threat forced the other, warring factions to align under a single banner. By doing so, they were eventually able to overcome the extravagantly imposing Veer forces.
