Summary from C.J. Cherryh's Fiction
After the Fall of Haven to the Mri in 2730, Alliance finally appeals to Union for aid. While help is debated in the Union Council, Haven falls, and when Union forces arrive they are met with distrust and anger by Alliance forces who do not understand what restraints have operated on the home front. It had been AlSec policy to keep the war out of the home territory of Pell; but there is now intense economic suffering and the loss of life can no longer be concealed. Alliance and Union forces destroy the last Mri warship in the pay of the Regul and end the Mri Wars in 2743.
