|Burgundie||South Punth ComIntern|
Operation Kipling was a series of wars fought by a coalition of nations led by Burgundie against the South Punth ComIntern and various communist militias in South Punth from 1966-1983. It cemented Burgundies roles as a major player in global politics and reinvested Burgundie in the destiny of South Punth. It also, through war industry, launched some Punthite nations, like Xingkai'pei, firmly into the 20th century where it has been able to keep pace with many occidental nations.
Lots of this
Communism in South Punth goes back as far as 1910 when Lui Po created the Proletariat Army in the Ching Ky Punth Republic. By the late 1940s the Proletariat Army had taken control of the whole nation and expanded its borders to create the Xingkaipese Union. Very little international attention was paid to these events as the Great War was raging at a fever pitch. The Communist Party of the Xingkaipese Union co-founded, with many other communists and socialist thinkers across South Punth the South Punth ComIntern (SPCI). Through the SPCI, communist insurgencies were formed across South Punth. Following the conclusion of the Great War, most occidental powers, including Burgundie were war-weary and rendered unable to conduct long and far off wars, so the period between 1953 and 1966 continued to see a Punth left to its own devices.
Starts with a pro-communist coup in Kandara in 1962 led to Burgundian military intervention. (1950s American intervention in Cuba-a-like) Bergendii (white) farmers rise in Rhodainia, Kandara. Petitions Burgundie to become a directly controlled county, denied many times but used as an invitation to get reinvolved in Punthite affairs. A group of Republican Burgo-Kandarans are landed in Bulkh to infiltrate Kandara and restore the democratic institutions. It is a total disaster, communist insurgents what is now the Bulkh People's Republic kill all of the Burgo-Kandarans and present them to the South Punth ComIntern. The guerrillas in Bulkh and the communist government in Kandara are heavily supplied and funded by the SPCI. In 1965, the communist guerrillas establish enough control over northeastern Bulkh, that they are able to declare a new state, the Bulkh People's Republic.
Kandaran Anti-Communist War
Kiplinger War of the Central Highlands
Pursatni Bush War
As Pursat takes land from Kulaparkar, the Sikh minority in the conquered region join the Burg foreign legion. They are sent to Recepstan and then captured during the Quds War, the unit is disbanded and abandoned by the Burgs.
In 1972, Xingkai'pei left the ComIntern, creating a power vacuum and infighting. Recognizing the opportunity in the summer of 1975, Burgundie finds the weakest members of the ComIntern, and without the centralized support and structure offered by Xingkai'pei nations start to fall.
