The Mid Rim Retreat, formerly known as the Mid Rim Offensive during the first stages, was a series of battles that were fought between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance embarked on one of its most ambitious offensives, involving thousands of ships and hundreds of battle groups as it pushed into the Mid Rim. After months of fighting and progress, Rebel forces became overextended and Alliance High Command ordered that there were to be no more advances. This decision was ultimately followed by orders to fall back as the Empire's counterattack drove into the gained territory, slowly forcing the Rebellion out of the Mid Rim. The Alliance was forced to retreat from worlds such as Ord Tiddell, Pothor, Jeyell, Charros, Trasse, and Durkteel, with several revolutionary groups retreating with the Alliance, while most others remained to harass the Empire.
