The Battle of Giju was a brief conflict fought on Giju shortly after the establishment of the Galactic Empire.

The battleEdit

The Empire desired to nationalize the industry and infrastructure on Giju and subjugated the planet. This spurred a short, but violent revolt by the native Herglic, which was only ended after horrific massacres forced the Herglic to reconsider their resistance.


Because the Herglic surrendered so rapidly to the Empire, much of the infrastructure remained intact throughout the Imperial Period. This lead to a rapid recovery for the Herglic once they joined the New Republic in its early days.
